Textbooks/Supplies for Math Courses
Best efforts are made to keep this list accurate and up to date. The bookstore should always have the correct list of books for the current term. The math department does not endorse any study aids not listed here, even if the bookstore lists them as recommended resources.
We are frequently asked if an older edition of the same textbook will suffice. Unless otherwise stated, the answer is generally “no.”
Some books are also available in electronic form, which is generally acceptable if that is your preference.
