"This is a summary of college only using two pictures; expensive as hell.

That’s my Sociology “book”. In fact what it is is a piece of paper with codes written on it to allow me to access an electronic version of a book. I was told by my professor that I could not buy any other paperback version, or use another code, so I was left with no option other than buying a piece of paper for over $200. Best part about all this is my professor wrote the books; there’s something hilariously sadistic about that. So I pretty much doled out $200 for a current edition of an online textbook that is no different than an older, paperback edition of the same book for $5; yeah, I checked. My mistake for listening to my professor.

This is why we download"

People, do what I did. get in touch with about 10-15 of the other students in the class and scan the book in as a pdf. Everyone puts in enough to cover the original cost of the book and they all get a copy of the pdf. Even better if the original book comes as one of those 'binder' ready versions. dash dirol

After all these books the only clothes I can afford is a hat and the only food I can afford is sliced cheese.

how does some countries not seem to understand that having a educated population is actually beneficial to them across the board?

Annie: "How DO some countries." Not does some countries.

Leo: "THEIR power." Not there power.

Such a friggin' racket. There are plenty of resellers out there if you look hard enough, fortunately. You just need to be careful of most of the foreign sellers if you are in the US because the books are just different enough to not be usable. My favorite gimmick is when most of the required readings are written by the professor.

And yet they will protest the rich and not their own universities. Is it any surprise that after paying $500 dollars for a textbook they become Marxist and want everything free.

I taught a computer programming class last year. Textbook was $40. I do not understand why other college instructors want to get the most expensive ones they can, when the one I had my students use was clear, concise, and very usable (according to the feedback I got). By contrast, my own textbook for the same class, 20 years ago, was $150 and I still hate Charles Petzold.

So some of those textbooks are available in Australia, and a quick internet search on post #25 shows that Understandable Statistics 12th Edition is AUD $156.30 (US$114).
To my American friends, you are getting right royally shafted.

It's the land of the free, isn't it? So aren't these whiners free to not study?

Also, Allan from first comment is the only smart person, dumber people should not be allowed on colleges anyway.

Nib,

Some make you buy the books they wrote themselves.
Forcing you to use the latest version prevents reselling.
It's just about cash.

If your teacher does this, he's an @$$ not worthy of his function. JC_doubledown
