If you go to El Camino and need books, walk across the street to Textbooks Inc. They'll not only pull the books for you so you're not walking around lost in the bookstore, but they usually save you a couple bucks. They also buy back at a little higher than the school does. Be warned, they'll only buy stuff back they KNOW they're going to be able to sell, so most stuff they won't take. But I keep my books, or you could sell them online and almost make your money back entirely. Seem to have a good stock of used books, although some look like they've been run over by cars, be picky with your used selections!
