I just graduated from nursing school and am spreading the word that many of the books used in schools can be bought on-line through various companies like amazon
, ebay etc.....
I saved a bunch of cash the last two semesters when I finally figured this one out.
Also, sometimes there are required classes that also require million dolllar books, but you never use the book. (These are the nursing issues classes, etc. NOT theory, etc) don't buy it if you can read it at the library. You can reserve the same book and share with a friend. Which brings up another topic. Get a study pal, preferably one with the same habits as you and who is smarter than you are. Perhaps you can share books as well as knowledge. Hope this helps!
