Today, I received the list of required textbooks for my first semester of nursing school in January. My initial reaction was to scream and faint. Then I woke up, remembered why I'd fainted, and fainted again.
But eventually I came to and decided to bite the bullet and ordered all TEN of my required textbooks. I bought them all used, mainly from Amazon
, and paid about $420. I didn't think that was too bad.
Nonetheless, the cost of textbooks is enough to make anyone's head spin. My family and friends can't believe it when I tell them how much money I budget for books....
Anyone else care to share?
