Textbooks are our most loyal aids and even our sleeping buddies during the exam period throughout our university years. Everyone has their own preference when it comes to studying. Some people like to paint their own books in color with text highlighting, some like to add their own notes at the edge of the page. Others just use their laptop or tablet and learn from e-books. And there are those who like to “inherit” books from seniors. Fortunately, the opportunities at our university provide a solution for everyone to facilitate learning. Your practice leaders, and seniors will be of great help in purchasing textbooks, but nonetheless we’ve gathered some useful information about the most important places you can get your books from.

SOTE Piac (Market) Facebook Group
The Facebook group, which now has nearly 8,000 people, is a great option if one is not reluctant to learn from used books. However, this market is not only the surface for advertising books, but also various sublets and health job opportunities are advertised.
At the beginning of each school year, the Book Sale will be held in September in the Basic Medical Science Center (EOK), where you can buy used books or, after a successful exam, you can empty your shelves by selling your books.
