i looked on some site that had bargains i wish i remembered the site but it basically scans all over the place for lowest prices and found MUCH lower prices.  

What is the exact name of the contracts book btw?

yeah, let me know what that site is. though, im really not sure if im going to end up buying my books on line or not. i think the extra money might be worth the peace of mind in knowing that i have the exact book that the proff requested and that i can return it without much hassle. if it going to save me that much money, though, then i might be convinced.

is the formal title of the contracts book

studies in contract law

http://www.fetchbook.info/showImage.do?search=1587784882

i am looking at fetchbook.info and also www.bookfinder.com

i think i will buy my books online, i have done so in the past and know that returning can be pretty easy. ofcourse i will have to consider the shipping cost etc but if its less then online i go.
