Textbooks

All textbooks are available online through Iowa Book and Supply unless otherwise noted. Iowa Book and Supply will ship your purchases to you. Prices can be found on the company website. ISBN numbers listed are per Iowa Book and Supply and may not be valid for online vendors. 

You are welcome to use online vendors to purchase textbooks, but please be careful to purchase the correct item and edition, and ensure shipping is managed so the books are in hand prior to the first day of class.

Jumpbooks

If you see a listing for a "Jumpbook," it's a digital version of the textbook. They're significantly less expensive than the hard copy, but have no resale value and are good for one semester only. It's offered as an alternative to the hard copy book.

Electronic course packets

Students will be notified of how to access electronic course/case packets by the instructor on ICON. They are not available elsewhere or through Iowa Book and Supply. Typically links to purchase case packets are posted on course ICON sites.
