    Oh, you said year. That makes sense. I just read over that part and thought you meant one semester. All my Finance and Accounting books run around that price as well, thankfully sometimes i get to use them for more than one class.

      But dude, please tell me you made the book total up or something. I don't think I spent that much on books total until like the second semester of my sophomore year.
      That's the approximate price listed on the UT site, bro.

        Buying books online FTW!

        I got a $140 book for $27 and change, brand new.

          Hopefully that's at the least per year and not semester. That would be insane. But like it's been said, definitely check for books online at Amazon and such. Much cheaper.

            I'll end up getting my books on the interweb, most likely.

              While we're on the subject, make sure you at least look into selling books on the internet. It's not as convenient, but it's better than selling a $50 book back for $5 after only 1 year of use.

                  Yeah buy used books from online most of the time they are in good condition and save around 40 bucks per book.

                    One time I sold back a book to the same book store I bought it from. I originally bought it for $35 dollars and when i sold it back I got $50. I have no clue how it happened but I wasn't going to complain. True story.

                      This is just a guess, but they have a pretty huge enrollment and it's a public school so they can probably get away with being a little inexpensive compared to other colleges. I could be completely wrong about that however.

                        U of M is a good state school. I'd be willin go bet its " ranked" ahead of Texas AM in most areas, for whatever the hell that's worth. Personally, I don't put too much stock into that because I"m a firm believe of you get as much out of your college education as you put into it. Not vice versa. I get real annoyed fast when I hear some rich kid think he's smarter than I because he pays 10292921 Brazilian ( George Bush joke here) of his dads money to go there.
                        Here is where I consult will again.
                        See, the sad thing about a guy like you is in 50 years you're gonna staht doin some thinkin on your own and you're gonna come up with the fact that there are two certaintees in life. One, don't do that. And Two, you dropped a hundred and fifty grand on a ****** education you coulda got for a dollah fifty in late chahges at the public library
                        Not to mention I don't pay full price at U of M :)

                        Now if i could only get a deal at University of Wisconsin. Now that's a good school. ;)

                          That is an epic success. I just hate that I've bought a new book because it's all that is left, for like $100, only to have it bought back for like $20 after 1 year of use, and then have it sold "used" for like $50. Bookstores are running such a scam.

                            No the worst is when they say they won't accept your book because the teacher is not going to use it next semester.

                              Yes, but the teacher tells you that you have to get that year's version in order to succeed in the class, but then does the same thing next year.

                              More advice for you youngins about to enter college: most of the time, book editions from a couple years prior to the newest one contain the exact same material. The only changes are usually updates of recent information and changed examples.

                                The worst is when a teacher basically says that the book is necessary, but once you're done with the class you realized you spent 100 bucks on something when you didn't use the book at all. Or even if you did it was still for things you could've found on the Internet fairly easily.
