Amazon sells used books but they aren't that much cheaper for OCA 8 books.

If you aren't in the US, do you have used book sites in your country.

Hi Jeanne, please ignore/delete last post by I. I thought to ask if there is any other used book center as Amazon is costly for used books for OCA 8. This is because as you said below in above post.

I was actually stating that Amazon links to used book sellers. But those are also not that much cheaper than new books. And in many cases more!

As an example, my OCPbook currently sells for $29 new. (It changes constantly so you have to keep checking.) The least expensive used option they list is $19, but they charge $4 shipping. Making the price $23. So only a five dollar discount off a used book.

While Amazon is a great resource, but you may want to check out some other resources like:
  • https://www.barnesandnoble.com
  • https://www.chapters.indigo.ca/en-ca/ (Canada based ships Internationally)

  • You may find that shopping at Chapters can give you a good deal if you are paying with the US dollar.
    Currently $30 in Canadian funds equals $24.20 in US funds.
    At that rate you may be able to get a new book from Canada for the cost of a used book from the USA.

    Note:
    Chapters does ship internationally, but I do not know what those rates are, so buying from them may not work out.

    Edit: Grammar mistake fixed
     
    It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
