HFS payment and textbooks

Hey all.  Incoming freshman here blasted with way too many costs all at once.  I've looked back a few pages but haven't found the answers.  I have a few questions.

1.  Is Room/Board due the 1st (of September for Autumn Qtr)?  HFS's website says that it is (I'm not on financial aid), but I haven't received anything in the mail or in my email about payment being due.  Does anybody know if there's a penalty for being a few days late with this?

2.  Is there a way to get the ISBN numbers of the required textbooks?  I actually like the prospect of a pre-marked book, and the UW Bookstore charges a fair amount for their used books (i.e. I'm looking on eBay).  The only problem is that there are so many editions of all these textbooks; I don't want to end up with a book that will be of little use.


French 201:
"EN BONNE FORME" by DIETIKER
"WKBK T/A ENBONNE FORME" by DIETIKER
*what the hell is this?!

Math 125:
"CALCULUS EARLY TRANSCENDENTALS" by STEWART
"SINGLE VARIABLE CALCULUSEARLY TRANSCEND"** by STEWART
**what makes this book different than the one above it?


I find no shame in calling the bookstore and asking for the ISBNs or whatever, but I'd like to know if there's a way I can avoid this.

Thanks in advance!
