    Textbooks >< Chemeng ones are usually in the region of 50, and to be honest they're often not that necessary. My class tends to share all our books. You get all the info you need from lectures and notes; our most frequent use for textbooks is to look up data about various properties. We don't have set textbooks for any of our courses, though I do have a few that I bought to help me out. Atkins' Physical Chemistry, Elements of Chemical Reaction Engineering, and Mathematics for the Physical and Engineering Sciences.

    Fortunately my friends and I all got firsts, so we're each getting a copy of Perry's Chemical Engineering Handbook. This is the chemical engineer's Bible and it's a massive brick - we're all going to use it as a doorstop. But it does contain everything you'll ever need to know about chemeng, as well as thousands of pages of data. Need to know a typical value of the heat transfer coefficient for a condenser with water on one side and an evaporating C4-C6 hydrocarbon on the other? Perrys can tell you!

    Mostly, though, you don't need to buy many textbooks. 'Atkins, Felder & Rousseau and Perrys' will get you through four years of chemeng xD

    Well, unfortunetly the first year for me is just all the basics so I will be taking copmuter usage, 4 languages and stuff like that..
    One book on chemeng isnt going to get me very far

    I'm not in school too... But I have a lot of second-hand books which I could sell. I bought them as new when I was in upper secondary. Most of them are still in pretty good shape.

    I'm not in school anymore, but the best thing I have ever bought was a Pottle. It is a pot/kettle. You can make just about anything it in, I used it almost every day when I was away at school, whether it was just tea or dinner. Definitely the best invention ever.
