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.
OMG this is my favorite Half Price Books Store out of the 3 I've been to in Dallas and Austin. Yeah, it's a maze and it's really crowded, but the people working there are so chill and easy to talk to! I don't really care about the size of the store as long as the people there are willing to help me find the books I want.
Good selection. Staff is usually friendly. Prices are reasonable. I will go back.
