To ensure the timely and cost-effective supply of textbooks to your students, please submit your textbook advice form by the specified dates below:
Semester 3, 2022 text advice is due before October 3rd , 2022
Note: Please note any text advice forms received after the cut off dates may mean textbooks will not be here in time for the start of the semester.
The CDU Bookshop and book publishers need significant lead times as books are not manufactured in Australia and must be imported, which often can take up to three months due to Covid and freight logistics delays.
CDU Bookshop requires a textbook advice form for each unit, each semester, as often details can change. The information collected by this form is not made available to students. Please ensure your course guide is up to date and that edition and versions are checked with the publisher. The latest edition is usually the most widely available and are automatically substituted at the time of order by the CDU Bookshop. Subject coordinators and lecturers are responsible for keeping this information up to date and consistent.
This form is specifically for Prescribed or Recommended texts.
Prescribed texts are essential to the subject and require purchasing by all students.
Recommended texts are not essential to the subject and are optional as references or study guides.
Non-Compulsory texts are useful and effective resources to assist students with their learning.
Desk Copies are available upon application to the publisher, for any book that has been assigned as a prescribed text in a scheduled class for the current semester. A complimentary desk copy is provided by the publisher, with the understanding that the text will be purchased by students in the course.
