Hey! I am starting Taft in September. I bought all my books off Half.com or Amazon. On a couple of them, I bought an older edition. Nothing in the law changes that much and if there is a newer case to read that is not in the older edition, I can get it off Lexis/Nexis. Anyway, I spent $160 for all my books. Heck, I bought the Torts Hornbook with pocket part on ebay for $20.00! Got Gilbert Summaries for Contracts for $5.00.
Now, the new book list they gave me with the enrollment materials has 2 newer editions of books but the list they gave me last month had the older editions. I am not buyer the newer editions.
Just keep hunting on half and amazon. There are some great deals out there on students wanting to get rid of their books,
