I've shopped at the Book Exchange not only for my books, but WVU stuff as well. They have clean, comfortable stores and reasonable prices on everything I've ever purchased. Unfortunately, my happy shopping was cut short when I found that THE UNIVERSITY HAD STOLEN FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS of my own money!!! Something fishy is going on here because I did some snooping around and the WVU Bookstore is actually a BARNES & NOBLE! I really wish that I was in charge of my money, because I would much rather spend it on my own accord!

PROS: Clean stores, friendly staff, all of the stuff I needed.
CONS:

I am not a student, so I cannot comment on the textbooks, but I do shop here for WVU merchandise. There reaa better (and cheaper) places to buy shirts and other apparel,, but they have a great selection, and the largest that I have founjd for infant and toddler sizes. They also have wonderful stadium pictures from the big games (expensive, but great memories).

The Book Exchange is cheaper than the WVU bookstore, but it's still way too expensive. They have a decent selection of used books. They generally have enough cashiers to make the lines move decently, but not really fast. They sometimes sell you the wrong edition, so you have to really watch for that.

PROS: Cheaper than WVU
CONS: Doesn't always have the right books

They have better prices, for the most part, than the WVU bookstores do. However, professors aren't required to give them copies of their book lists, which means that sometimes you may not be buying the correct edition of the book, or even the wrong books. But that is rare. The locations are not great and the parking is very limited for the one down town. Service is generally decent.

PROS: Good prices
CONS: Not always the right books

The book exchange has every book you will need for class this fall. The only downside is that you will pay an arm and a leg for them. Even though they are cheaper than the WVU book store, it will still cost you hundreds of dollars to get out of there. They do take care of you though. They are very good with refunds and exchanges and will treat you like a customer.
