Definitely did not miss this part of university. So now I have to recover almost $800 by December so I can pay for my next course.
Suggestion to all of those in undergrad / grad school.
Find out if it is OK to use an earlier edition of a text book. The amount you have to change to make a new edition is very small. Most professors will say yes, and may even be working from an older edition.
I have never paid more than $15 bucks for an old text book on half.com or used on amazon.
I saved thousands this way.
