Yeah. When I go to college I'm going to buy used books from Amazon or Ebay. Got the idea from my cousin first. x]

Dude, it sucks when you don't get financial aid and others do!!
Tuition's already hard enough and then you gotta go and buy a parking permit and books...
and sometimes they make you buy books that you don't even need to look at!!
assholes.

hmmmm i don't know if i should tell you exactly how i made it, but ill tell you what i used, hopefully it'll give you an idea.

the permits at my school are thin so i used a friend's permit, scanner, photoshop, printer, photography paper,sturdy paper, glue, glossy transparent paper, scissors, and lots of patience...

i only use mine for 1 day and for 1 hour so if yours doesn't turn out exactly as the original one i don't recommend using it =/

i get all my textbooks from half.com or from people who have already taken the class.
Before the semester starts, I would email all the professors, introduce myself and ask them what kinda books I would need for the class, name, author and edition, then search for them on ebay. Works out all the time, and when I'm done with the class, I'll either sell them back to the school bookstore or other people who wants it, use that money towards books for upcoming classes.

I borrow my books, although they aren't the exact books the lecturers recommend. Good enough, anyway. It's hard to get a hold of the recommended books; everyone wants them.

The books I have to buy are crazy expensive. There's this book that's almost $AU 400. D:

I'm willing to get second hand books, although I'm holding off buying them until I'm totally desperate. They would still be very expensive, considering the original price.
