I am fucking sick of getting ripped off by these motherfuckers. Spend $600 on text books a semester and get $50 back at the end. I just payed $125 for a "binder ready" book. The fucking pages aren't bound- it's a stack of papers. What a waste of fucking money. The funy part is it says the "binder ready book" will help my grades and help with flexibility. having a bunch of loose papers floating around is going to help my grades? Flexibility? For what, so I can have a piece of the book in every room? I wish there was something I could do. Oh well, I'll just rant on the internet and deal for a few more years...
why cant you sell the books at a used book store or something? get more than 50 bucks.
college is a pretty large waste of money. maybe not in the long run as far as education and future. but the immediate costs are rediculous.
some art history class i was in had something like 450 students, but the school made a deal with the publisher to buy a later edition overstock, but still sold the required book for something like $110 each. The school was making something like $60 or more per book...
but on the contrary, i had one professor who used his book in the class, but just bought enough copies of the book for the class (~15 people). but that was a freak exception
the best thing to do is find ppl who need your book after ur done with it and sell it to them for like 5-10 less than it is for them to buy it at the store. win-win situation. like i had a 140dollar book and used it was 115. if i traded it in i would of got 20 bucks, but i gave it to my roomie for 100
