    heres the issue, all my books are written by the school, and each set comes with online codes for homework, so you have no choice but to buy the bundles of brand new stuff. theres no way around it this semester.

    I use amazon as much as I can. I saved quite on a big on my next accounting class book buying it used online.
    That sucks so much. I haven't run into that problem yet so I had no idea even though I should have assumed that much but I've heard people complaining about stuff like this at my University and they buy all their books new from the college bookstore when they could have bought them used online.

    Why the hell do professors cancel f'ing classes without any single kind of notice???

    She basically just put up a paper on the door saying "I'm sick guys no class today" well I have to drive 30 minutes to get to school lady and 3o minutes back why couldn't you have posted something up on the schools message board or email us something!!!!

    Lazy professors make me want to punch a baby right on the kidney...
    It happens much too often.

    I had a once a week class, 6-9pm

    Had to drive 40 minutes, find parking, walk to the class only to find out that he changed his classroom. So i went 10 doors down and on this door it says he's sick... lol


    2 step process to figure out he's sick.


    My semester begins on thursday, weird... so i haven't bought any books yet.

    I will report how much it is this year. Sometimes i don't buy the book and i still get a good grade, so don't think its a requirement sometimes.

    I spent $500 last semester for 4 books, and the professors here at Iowa claim they reinvest their royalties into the university. Id like to see proof...

    btw 1990, college is awesome

    Professors not enforcing prereqs for classes. I dont understand why people sign up for a class they dont have the prereq for in the first place, but, enforce it damn it. Almsot didnt get into a class this semester because of that.
