Do many people unbind their books? It seems like a good idea in theory because I am assuming our books are big and heavy, but is it actually worth it in practice?
I know this has been addressed all over the place, but do you specifically( gladiator) recommend hornbooks and that kind of thing?
There is one but they don't give you much for them so I decided to keep my books. I think generally you can get like $20-30 for a $100-150 casebook. I didn't write in my books at all so I felt bad getting so little back for what look like brand new books. One day I'll put them all on a bookshelf to collect dust I suppose.
I've never actually seen anyone unbind their books but yes it seems like a good idea in theory at least.
I didn't use any hornbooks the entire year and I think I did well without them but most people use them a lot. I never really understood the point of paying to have some guy/lady tell me what I already learned in class. The examples and practice questions could be helpful though and obviously they can be helpful if you didn't understand something when the professor explained it. I think Abraham Torts and Chemerinsky ConLaw are pretty standard bibles. Otherwise E & Es seem most popular. I'm not sure what they cost, I think maybe $25-50 each?
