Is it possible to write code to scrape website that has multiple dropdown box?
I need to perform a task to scrape data off
I am brand new to coding, i am wondering if it is even possible, because it has multiple dropdown box then have to click view textbook list to get the info. Would a simple scraper or crawler do the job? I had been told that i need to call to the database but its not wise to do so.

The way I would go with this is have it scrape the HTML rather than the page itself.

Start by installing BeautifulSoup, and reading the documentation for it, if you haven't already. That's the tool most people use for these purposes, and it has special tools for handling both forms and scripts.
