I just graduated from Perk's ADN program. These books are very expensive and I think you would be better off getting them from the bookstore. The rent fee is included in your tuition. Many of us wanted to buy our books so we could have them, but after 2 years in this program, I promise you there is not one book that I had to own for myself, that I couldn't live without and couldn't rent. I think it would be more wise to use your extra money to buy care plan books, these are very expensive, and you really need 2 or 3 of them for variety. We had the Abrams book, and hated it! NEVER used it! I also have a delmar's book, AND NEVER USED IT! And it was expensive. When you have a skill to do in the skill's lab,they give you a check off sheet with each step the way they want the skill done. Most of the time Delmar and your med surg book contradict each other anyway. BUT you still have to have it, and you have to pay for that out of pocket. My point? save your money cause what you can't rent you have to buy, and its expensive! Plus you need a stethescope, blood pressure cuff, uniform
, shoes, skills lab kits, etc.etc. The list gets longer and longer. Wish you the best of luck! And they just recently changed the fundamentals book, its not the same one we had 2 years ago.
