When do you buy textbooks?
I have already received the textbooks list for my classes, and I plan on buying them either from friends who took the class last fall or get used books online.
1) Do you wait till classes start before deciding whether you need a book? In some classes I barely had to read the book and tests were over lecture materials.
2) If you buy your books early, how many weeks earlier do you typically get them?
3) Also, how reliable is it to buy books online on sites like half.com? Do you get the edition you ordered?
