Buying from other students is the best way to get a great deal on used books. I scored a few of my textbooks from other students last year and saved a nice chunk of cash. Check Facebook marketplace as well as the MacInsiders marketplace. Also on the Titles website they have a classifieds section. You can search for a book you are looking for and see if any Mac students are selling theirs. Their price and e-mail will be listed and you can e-mail them to set up a time to meet and purchase their book. You can probably even negotiate a lower price than the one they have listed on the Titles site if they've been holding on to it for a while and are looking to unload it for some quick cash. I bought a book this way last year successfully.
Also the Titles website will tell you if they have any used copies of the course material you are looking for before you go into the store.
