I always hear student’s complaining about the cost of their UNISA textbooks and I don’t blame them. When you are already paying a premium for your module you don’t need the extra stress of paying an arm and a leg for your textbooks.
Visit my.unisa.ac.za, scroll down and click on Books in the left menu titled Important Links.

Open http://encore.unisa.ac.za/iii/encore/?lang=eng in a new tab.
Search for your prescribed UNISA textbook by the Author or Title you just copied. If you feel like it you can use the Advanced Search option
