ENG 1302 book question...

  1. Hi everybody! Quick question, for those of you who took ENG 1301 and 1302 with UTA, did you have to use the required UTA version of this book? I'd rather not pay $175 when I can rent a different version for thirty-something bucks! http://www.amazon.com/Perspectives-A...es+on+argument

    Hi NurseErin, what did you end up doing? I'm about to start that class and I hate how much the book costs. $180!!!

    I was just coming to post the same question. What makes it unique to UTA? Is the regular version the same? $180 is painful!

    I used an older version of "Perspectives..." when I took it last spring. It was a little confusion 3-4 times because the instructor referenced page numbers that did not correlate, but when thinking about the topic in context, I found all the material I needed for the class by using the index and chapter titles. The "They Say, I Say" book was used much more and is a great little book.

    Hi RunHeatherRun!
    I tried to reply to your message but I guess I need to initiate 15 posts before they let me reply. I've only initiated one! Need to get busy on posting so I can reply to PM. It seems like we're taking similar classes to start. How cool!! I went ahead and got the books for ENGL1302 (ouch!!!!), but will get the others through amazon.
