ISBN stands for International Standard Book Number. I like to describe it like the social security number of the book. Since books usually have several editions, the ISBN points to the exact book. It's a lot easier than just searching for the title and author.
You may find the ISBN on the barcode or the copyright page. There is an ISBN 10 and ISBN 13. ISBN 10 has 10 digits and ISBN 13 has 13 digits. Both points to the same book. The ISBN 10 can end in a number or an x. The ISBN 13 is more popular throughout the world and it always starts with 978.
A lot of times bookstores will cover the barcode with their own internal barcode which consists of other numbers. To prevent the need to peal it off and leave a sticky mark, you can just look inside the copyright page.
Also please note that if you have a book with an access code, there will be 2 separate ISBN. One that's found on the book and one found on the access code. There's actually a 3rd ISBN which is the package/bundle ISBN for both the book and the code together. This is often the code given by the professor.
You can use these numbers to search for the book on Amazon.
