Yeah, spending that extra money for the box of books and e-box is a personal choice of preference everybody has to make. I did decide to spend the extra money to do that, despite how much I love saving money, because I love saving time. You may have already seen this since you've been following allnurses much longer than I have, but having the e-box allows us to copy and paste into our care plans (which are supposed to be infamously time-consuming), study guides, flashcards, etc. I know I could have saved a few hundred dollars, but I type for a living. When I think about all the many hours I will save by copying and pasting instead of typing or writing, I feel pretty good about that few hundred dollar investment. Just something to think about while you're making your decision Grats again!
