I have to repeat a couple of classes from last quarter. Only one of them will require me to buy ALL NEW materials and I think I can get used books for the others. Tell me then, why in the world do I have to pay over $500 for books, even when some of them are used??? I think maybe I should become a book writer and rip off people struggling to go through school who have families at home and hardly have enough money to put food on the table and clothes on their two year old, along with diapers.
Maybe I should consider renting my textbooks?
Share your experiences with purchasing textbooks and let me know if you have any ideas to get them at a more affordable rate.
