  1. Check your local libraries (Howe UVM, Burlington, and/or your current town) for copies. Ask for not only hard copy, but also if it's available for e-checkout, such as "Libby". Fletcher Free Library in Burlington has eBook access through Hoopla and Overdrive. Or, Green Mountain Library Consortium has e-books.
  2. Consider splitting the cost with a peer.
  3. Visit the used book marketplace on Amazon or eBay - allow plenty of time for shipping!
  4. Check second-hand stores (UVMMC's Replays on Dorset St, local Goodwill Stores or ReSOURCE stores).
  5. If you buy new, choose paperback on Amazon rather than hard cover. Even better, support local, such as Phoenix Books.
  6. Consider the audible version if that delivery mode works for you.
  7. Email Medical Student Financial Services - we may have an extra copy to lend!
