First of all, I'm a 2L and a mentor for incoming 1L day students. Hopefully, you're very relaxed and calm and you know everywhere to be and what to do over the next couple of days, but if not, feel free to ask any questions here in this thread or PM me. As someone already mentioned, Betasteve is right, you'll get your Westlaw passwords at orientation. Some of your professors might also individually lock their TWEN pages (I know Prof. Bellin does this for his Crim law class), so you'll have to get the password from that professor if necessary.
Now, as I said, I'm going to be a 2L and I never sold my books last semester. I also didn't highlight, underline, or otherwise mark my books, and I bought them virtually unused or new (it helps to get to the bookstore early). At most, their corners are a little worn and the person who had them before me highlighted a few pages in some of them. Occasionally, different professors use the same book, so even if your professor is different, you might see if their book is the same. PM me and we'll make a deal. I live in Dallas close to campus and I'll be one of the mentors at all of your orientation sessions, so we can arrange to meet then.

She updated her book in the offseason, so this is an old edition. Also, her publisher apparently binds books with spit and prayer, so the covers are coming off of ALL of these books. Anyway, I'd bet very few of the cases change in the update (this edition is copyright 2010), and you could probably get away easily enough with the older edition. You can always buy the new one later if you change your mind.
