    Wow that is definitly out of control! I remember it being up there though I was in your same shoes and really needed to save money, but because of the special software we needed for the fundamentals of nursing book and all of the complications peope had with buying the wrong one I was really happy I ended up buying the bundle, it saved me a lot of hassle. Also, the ebooks are simply amazing!!! I still use mine from Junior 1 since they are so accessable! It makes assignments soooo much easier because you can search the entire book with keywords on your computer! It's also soo much easier on our poor backs haha not having to carry them around. We didn't need them a whole lot in class, but its so nice if you have any down time between classes to be able to work on home work. Honestly, its really up to how much you can save on the books and if its worth the convenience the ebooks have. One option that I thought of is with buying the ebooks you can always sell the hard copies immediately if you want to. You can get a pretty good amount for them being brand new on ebay or amazon! I know there were a few people that didn't buy the bundle in our class this semester, but most of them wished they had. I didn't end up buying the package junior 2 or senior 1 because there weren't many books in it and the price difference wasn't worth it, but I always wish I had the ebooks, but at the time saving that much money was worth it to me. If there's any semester I recommend buying the package for its definitely junior 1, the rest you can get by without much hassle without it. I hope this helps! I know I kind of have mixed feelings about it. Ohhh And CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hey Bethany, I actually stopped in the bookstore today because I was wondering the same thing. She said yes there is a package but she does not know when they will be in. Im not sure what comes in it though

    Yea the community colleges have only 6 or so pre recs, because its an associate degree when you finish the program, but those have about a year and a half wait list once you complete the pre recs. ASU has 2 years of pre recs because its a bachelor degree pogram so its 4 years total, but it's difficult to get in to. Hope this helps! :)

    I think it is actually that simple...some things are out of order though. I had to read through the Perry and Potter book to figure out where a lot of the objective data went. I can't see it being very difficult because we havent even talked about how to put one of these together yet. Did you guys just copy and paste? Thats what I did, Im wondering if I should have done bullets....oh well.....I definitely agree that the week went wayyyyyyyyy too slow...and of course this weekend was gone in the blink of an eye! I hope the speed picks up or its gonna be a looonnnngg summer haha See you guys tomorrow!

    Im thinking we just need to google self directed learning and print out an article about it. Nothing major, just to discuss what it means I think.....I'm not sure each group will have to do that, that is just directions from our FOR, so the other groups might be doing something else with their FOR? Not positive though.....

    Ahh thank goodness Krisline! Im not alone! Im having the same problems!!!! My blackboard hasnt shown any of the classes yet nor do i have access to bb9. I am soooo frustrated especially seeing that we have stuff to read!! Ahhhhh Im going nuts too, the website isnt working at all! Ive talked to the help desk through online chat twice aout my blackboard and they both said different things and neither have worked! So now the site isn't even working and I cant even try to talk to someone else! Posting the chapters and stuff would be so helpful please someone!! This is so frustrating:uhoh3:

    Ok so I spoke with the help desk and she said BB9 is being rolled out slowly and everyone should have access by tomorrow night. And We wont be able to access our classes in BB8 at all. In case anyone else was having the same problem!

    What the heck? None of the classes are available to me on blackboard. Ive been looking like every day! haha Do you guys have blackboard 9 or 8? And how to you get BB9? Ive been searching the site forever and I can't figure it out! Mine is still BB8! And Yea Airborne that is what happened to me with FA. So dumb I totally forgot there was a limit but they definitely shouldnt have put up the amounts like that. Im so mad because I had 1700 left over from the year and I paid it back when I found out how much I was getting this semster. Stupid mistake on our part trusting that it would be right. Oh well I guess. I really need help with this blackboard thing if anyone might know why I dont have access or BB9 yet.. Thanks guys!

    Oh my gosh, did anyones financial aide accounts change? Mine popped up today about 3,000$ less than what they originally offered me!!! Now Im freaking out and so tired of this! When I go to look at the breakdown it say it cannot be accessed at this time. Such a joke! I already paid my tuition for the summer with credit cards and my savings account because my entire bill had to be paid in order to get my partial tuition reimbursement from my work and I was just planning on paying them off when my financial aide came in. I'm wondering if this has something to do with it. Let me know if anything changed with anyone elses please! It's too early to call financial aide, so I have to patiently wait for an hour! Ugh!

    Yup it's Crystal! Good memory! :) Good meeting you guys too! Good luck with the books! Thats nuts that it happened! Im thinking maybe a few boxes had old barcodes or something. They should definitely have to give everyone the cheaper price because of that. Let me know how it goes!

    No problem! I'm not sure what I'm wearing yet but my last name starts with Z, Im sure Im the only one so I won't be hard to pick out! My hold came off my account too, but the review is still under my to do list and my financial aide didn't change at all either......I wish I could just keep myself from looking at it until we start school but I just can't! haha
