1.  What's the easiest way to get rid of last semester's books/supplements and get a little money back?  My undergrad bookstore used to rip us off a lot.  Is Amazon better? Ebay?

2.  Which supplements are most helpful for property and contracts?

Thanks!

I can't tell you about supplements since I don't use them but I sold my books on amazon.  I forgot why I disliked ebay but there was something really annoying about it that made me exclusively use amazon.

I don't remember the exact way that Amazon does it, but they do charge a small fee.  I think it is a percentage of the price that you sell your book for.

Half.com, it's run by Ebay.

No fees (they do take a bite out of your profit though).

I've been buying and selling all my books since undergrad on Half.com

What I meant, in case what I said sounded like an up-front fee, is that Amazon takes a % of your profit.
