That just makes it easier to scan, convert to pdf, and upload to a torrent site.
What an absolute scam, I'm so glad my professor's required books are available on eBay as international editions.
My professor scanned the whole book, printed out the pages, put them into binders, and handed them out to class. Sorry you had to spend a stupid amount of cash.
Amazon is a life saver and they offer rentals, free return shipping.
My next semester’s books cost $653 from campus bookstore. I found them all on amazon for about $90 total.
A tiny hispanic man better pop out of that book to take your exams for you. It’s the only way it’s worth the money.
My school does a book buyback, and they don’t take loose leaf books. What a nice coincidence that almost every single textbook they offer that isn’t just a normal book you’d read outside of college (e.g. novels for reading/writing classes) is loose leaf, which also happen to be the most expensive ones.
Also, they say they give 50% of the bookstore price for your books, yet they gave me $3 combined for books that I paid $15-$20 each for.
THE EXACT SAME THING HAPPENED TO ME, I couldn’t fucking believe I had spent $250 on a book without a spine!! And I can’t even resell it, because no one wants a used one because they come with access codes!
The website is not coded in flash. Use chrome, right click and translate to English. Got through vistas for Span 101 and 102 using this.
Used to save a butt load with chegg or amazon by renting. That was until classes started making me purchase these card for several hundred dollars that included the online book RENTAL and (here’s how they get you) the codes to access the online homework. Total bullshit.
