Book list guarantee

Polyteknisk Boghandel in collaboration with DTU’s lecturers prepares book lists – at the following meeting they ensure that you will buy exactly the right version of the book. Should there be an error, you can return it 100% free of charge, even if you should have used the book. You just need to be able to document that you bought the book from Polyteknisk Boghandel. So remember to save your voucher.

Book packages

Every year Polyteknisk Boghandel makes book packages for bachelor students, which must be used for all courses in the 1st semester.

All students get a discount on book packages in the Polyteknisk Boghandel! You can order the book package via Polyteknisk Boghandel’s website and, for example, have it delivered directly to your door. You can also stop by one of Polyteknisk Boghandel’s stores and pick up your book package.
