What You Should Know About Bundle Textbooks

Have you found yourself visiting a half dozen websites, etc., for a required textbook only to find that the ISBN does not exist? If you are unfamiliar with ISBN searching, you may think that the professor made an error or that the textbook is not available yet. You probably don't know you're looking for a Custom/Bundle version textbook. See Are Bundle Textbooks Cheaper.

Many textbook publishers are giving professors the option to modify a textbook by adding chapters, experiments, and labs. These textbooks are given a unique ISBN and a unique custom version title, for example, English Literature, Custom Version for New York Community College. Bundles are packages that contain a textbook along with other course materials that may assist a student in their studies. These additional course materials may include such items as study guides, CD-ROMs, and access codes to textbook-companion websites. Bundles are typically packaged and sold as a single unit.
