    1200 dollars are you serious??? Im starting nu3 this fall and all i need to get for books is maternity. Sista- girl lemme tell ya somethin, they want you and all the other nursing students to purchase all of the book in one shot cuz they want your money!!

    They know that there is such a high drop out rate that most people in the first semester wont make it and the books are considered used so they make a profit if you try to sell them back

    If you have your syllabus, buy the books you need for that semester, girl. I would never, drop that much cash on books at one time.

    Sista, you neverknow if semester 3 they will require the updated edition... then what? just get what you need for your first semester... trust me

    good luck to you

    these are the books for summer readings:
    Fundamentals of Nursing (assorted chapters)
    Critical thinking for Nurses (assorted chapters)
    Calculating with Confidence (assorted chapters)

    These three were nearly 200.00
    i still have 8 more to buy
    i got a grant that helps pay for school, and if there's anything left, i get it, that will only be a bit..... but it'll help, but that's not til Nov. :stone

    If the books are any indication,what a ride this is going to be!
