Oh book buying still means crappy, cheap food. I dropped an entire 80 hour pay cheque on text books this semester. And that wasn't even a part time crap job, that was when I was a manager. Coulda cried haha.
Demonwolf, that's what a lot of my profs do, send out the PDF files we needed or use free sources like library documents or online sources. I'd go completely broke otherwise as I have at least 1 case study to do every week.
But man have I gotten good at finding articles in all shapes and forms, which I find a way better skill than being able to purchase an extra book. So yey extra bonus.
And I don't know about lucky..I am not the most educated on the difference between school in Canada and the States, but I'm only an undergraduate student. Going for a Bachelor's degree so 4 years. Grad school to me is a Graduate degree, so like a Master's which is an extra 2 years. Is that similar down there?
