    hi guys,

    does anyone know of any online places that sell medical text books?

    I've tried amazon.com that isnt bad but looking for others.

    I live in Australia.

    Thanks

    The Alamo
    Barnes & Noble. Sign up for a membership and you get a percentage off that day's order (like 15% or something). Useful if you're buying a bunch of books at one time. Plus free shipping.

    The best search engine for books is www.campusi.com ... if you punch in the ISBN code, it will go through ALL relevant online stores (including different country versions of Amazon) and get you the best price. I once saved $80 on one textbook ordering from Amazon UK, post currency conversion, etc.

    Since you live in Australia, I'm surprised that you don't buy the "international" edition, printed relatively close by in Singapore... it's often super cheap, much more so than the American version.

    Mmm looking into '3rd world countries' that have lenient educational text book tax rates (eg Malaysia/India) that can supply me with the 'international' versions. You're right sometimes they're even 30-50% of the full RRP in the US.
