Talking College textbook thread...

I have been saving a heck of a lot of money by shopping online.

If I purchased all the required text's from the campus book store it would be $887.56!

Right now I am up to $130 for three classes. I'm hoping to get the books for the other 2 for under $200. Those are pricey books, no way around that. But thats still good, I'll save $550.

Yeah, feeling the pain right now...



I am taking 17 units the semester (senior year, woohoo), and so far the bill for textbooks is up to about $610. Sucks, as this year 2 of the classes are using new editions, so there are no used textbooks availible.

I have been told by a person who was educated in Germany, that German universities do not use textbooks. Can anyone confirm that?

When I was in a 2 yr program we had a lot of instructors who had written their own textbooks that we were required to buy. As seniors we convinced a few instructors that had new editions coming out to not let on they were changing their textbooks for the next semester. We sold ours to the incoming guys and had a big keg party.
