Textbooks

I go back to university next month. I want to get my textbooks second hand, so I'm trying to find out what I need. All good, right?

Nope.

The textbook search on my university's bookshop website opened two weeks ago. According to my universities bookshop website, 3 of my classes don't exist.

So I will probably have to race around last minute to get my books and waste so much money in the process. Last semester, my textbooks cost 500 dollars.

My booklist screwed up and said I needed two books that I didn't end up needing. Which kind of sucks, since secondhand those two books were $35ish and the electronic textbook I actually needed was $75 and literally impossible to get secondhand. And I was less than 24 hours late to get a full refund from the little store I got them at.

I'm trying to put off looking at textbooks for as long as possible. Last year I paid over $220 for my contracts books alone.

textbooks come in handy when you're out working in my field. :shrug:

Books are expensive, but you can get a lot of use out of them even after you've graduated. :)

I never bought my books before class. About half the time my classes never used the "required" books.
