    I would say that yes it is safe to buy used text books online. I know in the past I have purchased some from and it appears that is also a good legit place to buy books (used and new) online.


    Yes, assuming you buy from a reputable business. For some basics on buying on-line see:

    There are thousands of book sellers on-line.

    I suggest using to search for the book you want to buy, and then pick a store with a high seller rating.
