Student shopping for textbooks at the U-bookstore? DO NOT PASS GO! DO NOT COLLECT 200$
The textbook wing of the U-bookstore is, first and foremost, a monopoly: Professors can determine whether or not to allow buyback, and it is often hard to find a text of the correct edition/color/whatever online that isn't as expensive as the U-bookstore issue ones. Pray for a merciful professor who is sympathetic to his students. And, never take a class with Joseph Weis unless you're into pissing your money away.
