what do you suggest about textbooks? buy them new? used? rental? or not at all until the first week of classes?

Some sites will tell you not to buy them until the first week, but personally I always buy them. Even if you don’t use them in the class,t hey’re good for studying and cramming before the tests. If I can’t borrow the book from a friend, I ALWAYS buy them used. ALWAYS. We use sites like half.com and abebooks.com. I never buy them new, unless it’s like a $5 book for a walking class :P If I can get a textbook that’s been written in for less, even better; the person before me might have left notes!
