Hi. Section 4 Group B
Because I have nothing to do, I wrote down the ISBN numbers for all the texts for comparison shopping. I maybe searched 15-20 sites.  At the U Coop all new books = $458.65 All used =$344. I found the the more expensive texts generally only had a 5-10% savings as new, but the used could be found for much cheaper. For the cheaper texts there seems to be some savings on new, but none really at all on used, esp when adding shipping. Of course, you can't flip through to see how much of other people's dribble obscures the pages. Anyway...

Thanks!
The really sad thing is, I did all this last night - I didn't even know about the postings. What's even worse is that in reality, I am lazy.
I believe I'm in the McCormick Society.

The whole Friday make-up class thing puts a serious damper on weekend travel plans!  I wonder what Berman is up to.  Six rescheduled classes seems excessive.

Still better than the undergrad prof who had a pesky habit of scheduling our makeup classes on the weekends.

Hey y'all, did you see that Berman's syllabus is up on blackboard?  It includes some re-scheduling information that might be of interest (six makeup classes on Fridays), as well as the times for the optional small group discussions.

It also includes the first-day reading assignment.

I can't find the syllabus on blackboard, it tells me that I'm not currently enrolled in any classes.  Can someone explain to me where to find it?  Thanks!!!
