the main piss take at my uni, was the number of courses where the chief lecturer ensured that HIS books were primary sources, ie mandatory items on the reading list.
i guess as a supplement to their lectures, it makes sense; but is this really the broad an all encompassing education one might expect as part of a degree?
and then one lecturer in particular.... conspired to make an IT course up, where one item of course work, was to type up perfectly, (line breaks and all,) a few pages from one of his titles. ie. he got the student population to create by hand, an electronic version of his book!
however with regard to the cost of books.... i did not buy a single copy of a single book throughout my entire undergraduate studies. our library rocked! it was fully stocked, had a more than adequate reservation policy and was a perfect environment to hit the books (especially when compared to home, with rizla, playstation and friends proving destracting!)
not one book bought! RAH!
Just coz you don't understand it
Doesn't mean it makes no sense!
