You find out what books you need the same time as your section, about a week early.  They don't tell you what books you need, but once you know your section you can go into the bookstore and they have them set up by section.   It is best to go before school actually starts to avoid the rush (but call 1st to make sure the books are in).   i think they upped the budget this year for books...you will spend that much (I think it is between $400-600 depending on the section and if you get optional books)

The book cost doesn't include hornbooks/study books, right?  Those run about $30-40 a piece.

So I know the shuttle runs every 15-20 minutes, but does anyone know how long it takes to get to main campus and then how long it takes to get to newton from the orkney road grad housing property?

That is correct, it does not include those books.  My price range was my best guess recollection though, I could be off.  I do recommend getting studybooks/hornbooks.  Most profs will tell you not to get them, but do so anyway.  They range in usefulness, but are generally pretty helpful.  In some classes I didn't touch them and others I lived by them, just depends on how well the prof teaches the material.  Be careful though, because sometimes they contradict the prof, so you need to make sure to still take good notes and know what the prof wants because in a contradiction, the prof wins.

Does anyone know how bad the gym on newton campus is? I really just use the treadmill/elliptical when I go to the gym and thats it. I've heard its really bad, but I assume that is because people are dissapointed with the weights?

It's pretty tiny. Although they do have tredmills and stairs. I've already gotten a year membership to a private gym.
