Okay, so I printed out the textbook list earlier and have been doing a little online shopping all night and wound up buying eigtht of the eleven or twelve total books we haveta buy for my section (4) Well, it turns out I'm either a bigger genius, or simply a better shopper than Rob because I saved even more money than he did. www.campusi.com is the way to go, yu can type in the book name, author name, or in the event your teacher was proactive enough, the ISBN #. It searched half.com, amazon.com, and a few other places to list the cheapest one in order (similiar to expedia with airfare).I double checked the books with the "textbook" tab on the current student pages to see if the '05 booklist had changed any from the '04 one, well mine hadn't, and the "textbook" links you to a pdf page which has a majority of the ISBN #'s or at least the edition # or year. Took a little work but I'm 99.9% sure I bought the right books.Anyway, for the eight books I bought tonight, the list price for them new at the Texas Tech bookstore was $437. Used at the bookstore they were still $329. But I only paid a total of $129 for them by buying online through campusi.comyes, I know......I am the man, hahaI'm also leading the bidding for another book I haveta buy that retails for 37 bucks used........the going price right now is $1.75 (though there are a few days left in the bidding)Anyway, just wanted to let everyone in on the find...... P.S. I also know how inherently stupid/gay I must sound by being so excited about buying law school books........
Ok, to all the other Section 1 people on this thread, Have you noticed that those of you that have Bard for Torts 1 like me will have to read Getting to Maybe? That is pretty cool!
Silly question: is buying one of these laptops absolutely necessary?
Will be moved into Lubbock at Willow Hill on June 27th: 13 days from now. Who's gonna be there with me? I'm going to bored as hell for the first week.
Did buy the Dell 700m last night though! Now all I have to do is wait for it to come in so I can play with it!
Aron, Most of the books I found used online had almost no markings in them at all. I've receieved five, and they've all been pristine. If you go onto websites like half.com, the sellers must tell you in what condition the book(s) are. If someone says that the book has highlighting from cover to cover, for example, then you don't buy the book; as did I. It's a good way to save money. I would say that a new laptop isn't necessary for law school: the main program you're going to be using is Microsoft Word, a program that a 1992 Pentium 1 computer can run easily. If I were you guys I'd be skeptical of buying that Getting to Maybe book. Often times, I've read, law school professors will contribute to a particular text and then require his or her students to buy it so that he or she may collect the royalties. Chances are, you'll probably never use it in class. Woohoo! I'll have some people to hang out with until Kyle gets there on the 7th of Aug.12 days in counting...
hey everyone, I got an email from tech yesterday regarding fall due dates. Right before I opened it I deleted it on accident and could not recover it. Does anyone have it? If so can you please copy and paste it to this thread? Thanks, Eric
