The Central Texas College Bookstore is were you can be sure you are receiving the correct textbooks for your course. The books are chosen by the departments and then ordered by the bookstore. Our stock does vary from day to day as students are purchasing books on-line and in-store. Used books go quickly and are not always available. You will be notified by email only if your used book you ordered online becomes out of stock. We cannot accept phone orders. Pick up is no longer an option. UPS will not deliver to a P.O BOX.

We will be closed July 4th for the Holiday.

Before purchasing any textbooks or other resources, verify that you are purchasing the correct items.

1.  Go to http://ctcd.edu/books

2.  Select start date for your class(s)                                             

3.  Enter the course prefix (example: MATH) and the course/catalog number (example: 1332), and then select the delivery method.

All required and optional materials will be listed, along with title, author, edition, publisher, copyright, and ISBN. Use this information to verify that what you are purchasing is correct.

Here are some things to note:

1.  The list may include a bundle.  The items in the bundle may all be required for completion of your coursework.

2.  If the bundle includes an access code for software that includes an e-book, you might be able to purchase the access code separately rather than purchasing the bundle with the print book.

3.  A custom book may be listed.  This may or  may not have the same content as a non-custom book.

4.  An e-book version of the print book may be available.  This may or may not be identical to the print book, and the e-book alone will not give you access to any required software for your course.


If you are purchasing an e-book, be sure you know the answer to these questions:

1.  How long do you have access to the content- semester, a year?

2.  Is it available off line?

3.  Can you print it?

4.  What are the technical requirements--browsers, plug-ins, etc?
