I get my books and school supplies paid for by the VA Voc Reb (Veterans Affairs Vocational Rehabilitation), L&M can still get me the stuff I need as they have be vetted by the VA. So I end up with more supplies and faster lines than the SAC Bookstore. They have almost always had all the books I needed for my classes, even when I had to take a class at SPC. The one time they did not have the book I needed, they not only ordered it, but they but a free rush on it for me as the class had already started.
If you don't mind waiting for a new book. You might have to wait a couple of weeks before someone brings in a newly issues book but it is worth the price you will pay when you get to the register.
Good selection. Staff is usually friendly. Prices are reasonable. I will go back.
