Sigh.... there must be some conspiracy between the college book store and the book manufacturers. Even though it's still the summer semister, I did view the preminimary book list for the classes in the fall semister. Spanish 1A-Big Divet. At the top of the list for Spanish 1A was the note "Attend first class before purchasing". (Sigh). Anyways, they sell the Spanish material in packs. According to the booklist, there are two packs: * Textbook, CDs, Electronic Labbook: $135.99 new/$102 used * Textbook, CDs, Paper Labbook: $165.99 new/$124.50 used I'm going to have to speak with someone to find out the differences and details. But, a prelininary examination of the "deluxe" pack showed a textbook, paper labbook, CD-ROM, 8 audio CDs, and a tape. CIS 11A/11B-Word processing with Word 2002. One of those courses they want you to take to transfer over. Well, the textbook they want you to use is Microsoft Word 2002: Signature with CD. Once again, the bookstore listed the price as $66.60 new/$49.95 used. This time, I got the ISBN number and checked Amazon's price: $91.56 :bang: Speech 10-Interpersonal communications. Again, a course needed for a AA degree. According to the book list, I have two books: * Mediation $15.95 New/$12 Used/Amazon: $15.95 * Bridges, not Walls $33.70 New/$25.30 Used/Amazon: $35.50 Amazon has a slight edge of about 80 cents if I use super saver shipping. Let me guess, keep all the receipts and hope they're tax-deductable.
