heh. NCSU has online textbook ordering now, unlike the first time i was in school. this is allowing me to price my books now and see how ugly it's going to be, instead of dying at the beginning of the semester. however, it looks like i'm going to be spending a couple hundred dollars more than i ever did as an engineering major. wtf? i thought it was supposed to be the other way around. and i don't have friends in the same classes to buy books off of this time either. =p and isbn.nu isn't beating the school's prices for used books.
