Some textbooks are not changed much at all, and some profs don't use cases from the last 30 years (although to be fair, the 1L professors are a bit more dynamic). But when I was a 1L I would not have wanted to be hassling with figuring out which is which while also taking 18 credits of totally Greek material.TheMostDangerousLG wrote:Random Q (as always, I apologize if this has been answered previously): for 1L courses, how cool is it to get a prior edition of textbooks? Is it like undergrad, where it depends on the prof, or do you pretty reliably need / not need the edition recommended by the bookstore?

Thank you both! Looks like I'll stick with the recommended versions, at least this year.
