I believe that a Response Pad Xr (Xrc-01) is mandatory for a couple of my classes. When I typed that into amazon it was much cheaper than the SUPeStore sells it for. Does anybody know if it would be ok to purchase it off amazon, I am really not even sure what it is. Also I am having a hard time deciphering which textbooks are mandatory and which ones are not,(most of my books do not say optional or required.) Does any body have any advice on that, or should I just wait until the first week of school to purchase my books?

    I have had good luck with calling the Supestore and asking them to help me choose books.

    Some folks will say to wait until you have gone to class to see which books you need. I prefer having them on hand and returning any books/supplies that won't be needed.

    Sorry, don't know the answer to the other question.

    Ditto on calling the Supe Store. I was totally confused about the textbooks for Chem 101 and the lady I spoke with was really pleasant and helpful.
