Most UW Data Science courses require a textbook. Textbooks may be purchased through the UW Extended Campus Bookstore, powered by eFollett. Students may also look into using other online or traditional retail bookstores. (Purchasing your books through the UW Extended Campus Bookstore will ensure that you get the right editions of the right books for your classes.)
When purchasing textbooks, please be sure to verify the title, edition, author, ISBN, etc., that are listed for each required text in your class(es), and plan ahead to have your textbooks available by the start date of your course(s).
Materials may also be purchased from eFollett via phone, fax, or mail. Check out their Store News & Hours page for contact information and additional details.
*When ordering textbooks from eFollett by phone, identify yourself as a UW Extended Campus student and specify your program of study—Data Science—along with the course numbers and titles to identify your courses and texts.
Frequently Asked Questions About Textbooks
New or Used Textbooks?
In most cases, you have the option to purchase a new or used textbook. When purchasing a used textbook, please note that some textbooks require students to have a special code to access required supplemental materials. These codes are often not available with used textbooks, but they can be purchased separately. If you purchase a used textbook, refer to your course syllabus and then purchase the code if you need it. You will need to purchase the code through the book’s publisher.

May I Purchase Texts from Other Vendors?
You are welcome to buy your books anywhere. However, it is your responsibility to obtain the correct book (and appropriate edition) that is listed for your class. Be careful to use the exact ISBNs to ensure you have the correct edition of the text. Allow enough time for delivery to ensure your books arrive by the start of your course. UW Extended Campus is not responsible for textbooks purchased through another vendor. Please review the return and book-buyback policies when purchasing.
