Rather than shopping around online at multiple merchant sites one by one, the link above allows you to obtain the same results with just a few simple clicks. It eliminates the need to copy and paste multiple ISBNs over and over again into individual merchant sites in order to find the best deal.
NEW!! Creighton Prep has created a Textbook Buy/Sell Facebook Community page for parents and students to buy and sell used text books that are currently being used with Prep’s curriculum. Prep does not have any ownership or responsibility for the listings on this page. It is up to the buyer to ensure they are buying the correct book(s). If you are buying a book, please double check your class schedule, title and ISBN numbers required on Prep’s textbook buying page before making a purchase. This will ensure you are buying the correct book and version: print book and/or electronic text. Matching the ISBN is the only way to guarantee you are getting the correct book
Regardless of where you choose to purchase your books, it is the student’s responsibility to have his textbooks by the first day of class each semester. You must verify the ISBN number when purchasing books. Some titles have changed edition number, and you can only be assured of the correct book by the ISBN. Creighton Prep is not responsible for the purchase of the wrong edition or a discontinued book. If you have any questions about the ISBN number, please email Mrs. Sands at email@example.com.
To ensure that your book order arrives on time, please check the processing and shipping information provided by the book seller. Processing time does not include shipping time and can add up to 10-14 business days to your order.
Many of our required readings are in electronic format and will be accessed through the iPad. However, not all the publishers have formatted their books to a format compatible with iPads so they are not all available electronically at this time. Until there are more e-books available that fit our needs, we will be using a combination of e-books and traditional books for our classes.
Students and parents should take into consideration the potential for schedule changes before purchasing any books. Graduation requirements will remain in the schedule, but should students decide to change elective courses after they have purchased books, they will be responsible for reselling their textbooks.
Prep has established specific required apps for all students in order to provide them with consistency in the classroom. Other apps may be required by a course by course basis and will be communicated to students at the beginning of each semester by the course instructor.
