I went Friday and picked up my books for Fall. $750.00 down the drain and I only bought the books for 4 of my 6 classes. Once I got home and started looking, two of the books were labeled "Less binding = Less cost". Yeah. Sure. The were both still well over $100 each. And I had to go buy a couple of 3-ring binders to put them in! (They are already hole punched.)
I wouldn't mind (and would probably embrace it) if it made a significant impact on the price, but seriously?!? The one book sold last semester for like 135 and this time for 115. If I am only saving $20 give me a book that at least has a paperback binding so it stays together!
Yep my Econ book is that way and apperently my Psych book for fall will be too. I guess our school is going all loose leaf or digital so they can't buy them back. Its kind of dumb. I ripped a couple pages out of my econ book on accident from my hand sticking to it, the holes ripped right though the rings on the binder
It's my fitness and Wellness book and my Economics book that is this way. You can buy little round stickers to repair where the holes ripped. I thought they had them at WalMart, but I couldn't find them today.
I have had one text like that and it was because the book was written by the professor specifically for the class and was self published by the school. It was pretty cheap - less than $50, I think. I'd be mad if I had to pay over $100 for it.
I like the loose-leaf ones just because I can staple it by chapter. I bring it into class with me and use it with my notes instead of bringing the entire book. And I can usually re-sell mine - post notices around school and there's always another student willing to take it off your hands. School bookstore pays crap anyway during resells.
