Majoring in history, economics, and philosophy, and minoring in classics.

I'm taking 21 hours this semester, though four hours (two classes) are music ensembles that have no books, and two is a P.E. class that also has no books.

Haven't you people discovered the photocopier yet? I almost never buy the required text books and have only met one professor who insisted that I did. I've probably saved thousands this way...

PS, I study computational linguistics.

About $250 during my last semester, though most of my textbooks were anthropology paperbacks bought used online. Best thing about anthro and religious studies is that the traditional textbook dies after the basic courses and afterwards it is all market paperbacks and course readers. :D

... not looking forward to the cost of book for law school though. :(

Around $300 for 15 credit hours. . .Online classes rock. More time for varsity fencing and club soccer practice.

$0!

At least for required textbooks. The perks of being a PhD student and finishing classes last year.

I might still buy some textbooks though.

So it's a wonder that your presence alone in any thread don't derail them and lead to debates about world leaders and homoerotic desires.

Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College, MGCCC, Its only a 2-year Community College though...I think the Jackson County campus has a Southern Miss branch though, presumably books can be rented there I think...

I think they can in South Alabama too...those are the only campuses I have any knowledge of though, :lol2:
