I've spent $480 on books over the past two and a half years. Have read ~33% of them.
In my first semester I bought every book I "needed". Spent over $500. The next semester I had an Amazon Prime account (btw if you're a student you get a year for free). I think I spent maybe $150, maybe. Since then I've been pretty good about saving money on textbooks, though my International Relations book was $160.
Hate the courses with teachers that make you buy the book because they wrote it and then never use it
My Law and Legal Systems professor last semester put all of his lecture notes online. I'm talking nearly 200 pages of lecture notes, all organized, sourced and with a table of contents, online for free. He said he had been approached in the past about publishing it. He asked the person why. They said, "well we can sell it to students."
"But I can put it online so students can see it for free..."
