Nearly a thousand dollars if you buy them all new.

I recommend buying used whenever possible, or possibly not buying them and hanging out at the library. This may not be obvious to an 18 year old, but there is absolutely no benefit to a newer addition. The material taught in introductory courses doesn't change rapidly at all. They do move around the contents a little and change the page numbers to make it look different.
