I know this may be a stupid question but did you actually read/use your textbooks in CRNA school? I'm asking because it's time to buy books and I want to make sure it's worth the thousands of dollars. If you did use your textbooks, would you recommend buying them (I would buy them used of course) or renting them? I never used my nursing textbooks after the class was finished and I didn't use them to study for the boards. In my nursing school, tests were based off of what my teachers taught (i.e. their powerpoints and lectures and not so much directly from the book). I know CRNA school is a whole different ballgame but thought it didn't hurt to ask! I'll be going to the Minneapolis School of Anesthesia this fall so if anyone currently in the program or an alumni could respond, that would be awesome! Thank you!
