    these are only for this semester too :lol:

    you can always sell them once you finished with them anyway, so it won't be a total loss

    What are you studying, we find a lot of course books on Amazon resell market.

    Sell them on when your done it will help pay off your uni debts

    Well that depends...im doing law and if a new edition has been released since you bought it and trying to sell it then its near enough a lost cause!
