And just one more week until I'm done with my job! Being a lame-duck at work doesn't do much for motivation and I just want to get out of there!
I like getting new books. I try and keep them all.
And I think in pretty much every single law school primer I have read it says you should never, ever get used books. You need to mark it up yourself and know that you know what YOU know.
One of my friends who is a lawyer at a big fancy firms just gave me the tip to keep my law books...apparently he sold all of his and now constantly wishes he had them for reference in his office. Many other lawyer friends chimed in and said to also keep all hornbooks...that they use those in their offices even more often.
For what that's worth!
Saving 300 dollars or a little more out of 150,000 in cost is not worth anything. Well it is worth .2% or so.
The cost is especially worth it if you consider the benefit of even a small chance of getting better grades.
