Hello, I just completed my first semester as a level one nursing student at UT-Tyler. Just wanted to drop in and give you guys some tips I personally did not buy the electronic books and I did very good in my courses. I did not buy the bundle of books from the bookstore either. Also, some of my classmates that bought the books were very disappointed and said they would not recommend it. I would advise all of you to invest in a planner to keep up with different assignments for each class. The classes can be challenging but it is do able and you will learn a lot in a short period of time.
