I was just gonna come in here and post how ridiculous the education system is in this country but I see that is the point of the topic already. :P

Text books are the BIGGEST RIP OFF I've ever seen.

500 bucks for a book, only use a chapter out of it. :/

You can save up enough for an X1 just by buying used or sharing books for a year.

Life is normally too short to purposely seek out things you hate, but apparently that rule doesn't apply on the Xbox One board.

Congrats on finishing and on the new purchase. It can be a grind, so enjoy some quality gaming.

Most of my books I haven't used. Had to buy them because the code to get on their site came with the purchase of it.

Damn. It's worse now than it was when I went. One of the reasons I dropped out was because I couldn't afford the books.

With the books being so expensive there, can't you just download a PDF of the book? Or read it online?

Also welcome to current gen!

Pretty lucky that your books didn't get a "new edition" with slightly different pictures, making re-selling them back to the school impossible.

It's pretty terrible. I spent about the same this past semester. The DSM-5 and all the crap I had to buy with it was a real kick in the nuts.
