Master Textbook List

Information on textbooks for all Undergraduate Mathematics courses at the New Brunswick and Piscataway campuses of Rutgers for the current semester is collected here. Individual course pages may have additional information.

Detailed information about availability of textbooks can be found at The Rutgers Bookstore. The title, author, or ISBN number can also be used to find information from on-line bookstores such as Amazon or Barnes & Noble.

ISBN numbers issued before 2007 have 10 digits; those issued since 2007 have 13 digits. Some books published before 2007 can be identified by ISBN numbers in either format.

Check the syllabus for your particular sections before purchasing a text.

 

* Courses 135 & 136: Students are automatically enrolled in the First Day Program, which bills the cost (65 dollars) of the MyLab Math license (includes copy of e-text) to the term bill and gives immediate access to the textbook. Students may opt out of this program. Students may also purchase, through their MyLab course, a physical copy of the text for an additional 40 dollars.
