As a college staff member and alumni, NEVER open your book until the first day of class. Sometimes teachers let you buy an older version of the book, or sometimes, they use their own powerpoints. I've even seen it where the student needed an access code that only comes bundled. Now they have two books and they can't sell either without the access code.
You can sell it on campus for even $10 off because there will be at least one person who won't mind the discount and if so, do not sell it for less than that since there will be a negotiation. Now if you are not tight on money and will be taking the course another semester, you can just keep the textbook until then. With college, never buy textbooks until after the first lecture because what happened to you can happen again, and there are times when a new edition is released and your course requires you to have the latest edition.
