First things first...

Textbooks. Everyone hates buying textbooks. Spending hundreds and sometimes even thousands of dollars on textbooks for one semester is a common theme across schools in the nation. Everyone knows that buying textbooks from the school's bookstore is a goddamn ripoff and yet, most people do it. A much cheaper way of buying textbooks is through the internet. Sites such as abebooks.com and amazon.com can save you hundreds of dollars on used books. Of course, a problem arises when the greedy publishers change the chapters around and alter a few aspects here and there every 2 years and call it a new edition. In this case, shopping online would only save a couple of dollars so I would suggest renting the book online (more on this later), or holding off on the class for one semester if possible.
