What do you use carring your books? - page 3

OK, I have a HP backpack to carry my books, but for one class, I have 4 books. What do you use to carry your books? Don't you have a lot when you start nursing classes? THANKS FOR YOUR INPUT. ... Read More

    I keep my books organized in a suitcase with wheels. That I keep it in the back seat of my pickup. A big trunk would work even better. In addition, I keep various boxes organized with clinical or project stuff. You know, whatever is going on at the time. However, I carry a briefcase bag to class (flap-top). This is better for me because I can't stand to dig for things. Hope this helps...

    I had an L&Bean backpack that was huge when I was taking the pre-req's, when I started nursing school I got the one on wheels, most days we had to bring 3 or 4 big books and it got heavy, I couldn't even fit them all and a notebook in my reg. back pack so I found one, I think it's a Jansport, I couldn't find one where I live at Walmart or any other store (small town) so I found it on a website and ordered it.

    I use a back pack. Even though the bag on wheels looks sooo tempting, I stick with the back pack and it and count it as my exercise for the week!

    I have a huge briefcase type bag, but to be honest If I don't get a bad back from nursing, I will form all the books I lug around, thankfully I don't usually need more than four big books a day, and me and my friend share books in class so that halves the weight, and helps with revision, transferring notes from one book to the other.

    I also havea paddington bear shopping bag, which fits in a couple of text books, or a lever arch file, which I tend to use for all my journal articles.

    When I am in full time courses, I have a rolling backpack. It's a lifesaver! Otherwise, I just use a regular sack (I'm only in one class right now, so it don't take much!)
