Oh, your college is buying back textbooks for 10% of what they cost, too?

this is so perfect for me because I just went to sell my books back yesterday. over $400 dollars spent at the beginning of semester, headed in with hopes of at least $75-$100.
They were only buying back one of my books. They paid me $10. MFW

My school has a site specifically for buying/selling textbooks between students. **** gets done. You should look into anything like that at your school

Last semester I somehow got really lucky, bought a book for like 20-30 bucks used. Sold it to a different bookstore at the end of the semester for like 75 bucks.

I thought it was just my college...
I am not alone!

I have $300 worth of "required reading" an unopened bag in my closet.
Never buy books until they're actually needed, because a lot of teachers just give you a long reading list to make themselves look professional with complete disregard for how much money you're going to waste on them.

ya my sister had the same thing. she never used this one book and kept it in the saran wrap and everything spent around $200 and at the end of the semester during book buy back (what here university calls it) they literally offered here $10, needless to say she just kept it.

MFW I bought all my books from the bookstore my first semester in college and spent around 800.

IDK about your guys's college, but NCSU has a policy that they have to keep a copy of all books required for a class in the library at all times. So instead of buying books, I just check them out of the library and , if necessary, scan them a chapter at a time to a PDF, print them off, and take them to class.

Saved me over $1000 this year alone

You go to NCSU!?
I'm going to be a senior in high school next year, and I'm thinking about applying there.
I toured the campus like a month ago.
Nice place.

indeed, I love it here. Campus isn't the prettiest (actually ranked top 10 ugliest campuses in the US), but it has a great atmosphere, and the engineering program is top notch
User avatar #23 to #22 - AccWasLost (05/02/2012) [-]
Ah, I've heard much about the engineering program.
I've decided to major in Computer Engineering. Perfect.
Anything you could tell me to prepare for college life at NCSU? Tips, advice, anything?
User avatar #24 to #23 - bionicsheep (05/02/2012) [-]
when your professors tell you that you need to spend as much time studying for a class as you spend in that class, they tend not to be ************ . College is 1000x harder than high school, especially if you chose a challenging path, such as computer engineering.

Also, if you are doing Computer Engineering, go ahead and double major in Electrical Engineering, its like a 3 class difference or so.

Live on campus for at least your first year, it's how you will meet all of your friends and it will keep you entertained with all the events that are always going on.

other than that, just enjoy it. I am very nearly finished with my college career and will miss it very much. it goes by scary fast
