Text Book Information & Purchasing
Bucks County Community College is committed to providing all students with the best education and resources possible. Most courses have handouts, manuals (non-published text) and/or published textbooks. Courses that have handouts or manuals (non-published textbooks) will be provided as part of the course by the Bucks County Community College. Some courses however require a published textbook, these courses will require the student to have purchased a published text for the first day of class. It is recommended that if a published text has a published workbook or published study guide the student purchases them for their benefit however not all classes require or have one available. Below you will find a list of recommended places to purchase published text(s); however you can find them elsewhere if you choose.
