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!!!!!!!!!!!!
