    I got my extra badges at the trophy shop on Sahara & Torrey Pines. I got all magnetic - they are $8.50 each or 5 for $25. Super simple and ready the next day. I got the impression they do a lot for the nursing students.

    By the way the books are in at the Charleston Campus. I got mine last week. A case full of them. Literally!
    I should have bought my nametags there :/ Stupid bookstore. I was there getting my toolbox book along with other stuff and I didn't realize that they were $12 each until I looked at the receipt. What a ripoff!

    I guess I will be buying myself a nice $700+ Christmas gift next week! How exciting!....not...

    Sombra, I haven't seen you around here lately. Did you ever find the facebook group?

    I did the same thing. I didn't realize how expensive they were until I looked at the receipt!!! I bought mine when I picked up toolbox book too! I still have to go back and get them next week when I get my books. Are you getting the ebooks bundle? I am going to get that bundle.....It's getting closer!!!!

    I'm getting the hard copies. I don't care to read from a computer so much. I know it is getting so close! One more month...I'm so excited!

    I did get a few...the Davis Drug book because I have been using one for years in my pharmacy and I wanted my own copy, and I prefer it over the one they required. I also got The Potter & Perry Study Guide and The Jarvis Lab Manual since they were recommended by actual students. I got them for much less on Amazon than the cost at the bookstore. They rip you off so much at the bookstore. I nearly cried when I opened the $727 cardboard box. I really wish I just bought them all from Amazon. They would have run about $450 (new!) but it is what it is. I suppose the online access is a plus (a REALLY expensive one). Maybe next semester I will go the cheaper, non bookstore route...

    Yes, always go cheaper! Even craigsist has a few people selling their books!!! The only recommended books I ever got were the study guides, and then like I've said before, the Made incredibly easy books, straight A's books and demystified books (not all 3 for ever course though!)

    You always post such helpful info. Thanks. So you recommend all the study guides for first semester or which ones helped you the most. I have checked out the made incredibly easy books from the library. I will have to look for the study guides on Amazon. Thanks again for your helpful posts. It really is appreciated!!!!!

    As an "upper classmen" I feel it's my duty! It's hard, and you feel so lost, so any help, I know, is much appreciated.

    For the study guides, I just got the one for Potter and Perry and Jarvis. Also, and I know this sounds early, but an NCLEX book is a good guide as well! I have the Saunders one, and it's awesome! https://www.google.com/shopping/prod...&ved=0CLQBEMwD
