can get 2nd hand Textbooks from seniors?
I used to do that when I was in Sec school, as long as the school is still using the same edition. Best is get from those seniors who take notes then can get 'tips' and take afford to copy less notes in class.
Then after that pass on to the juniors after that. It was pretty common practice in my school at that time. Promotes "sisterly-bond" too! (i graduated from a girl school.)
hmmm ... no wonder I always sleep during classes in my sec school days ... coz don't need to take notes myself!!!
Y so expensive? I think max should be like $200... For me,not necessary to get all the exercise books etc... get them when teacher needs them.During sec 1,I bought 10 exercise books,teacher never used even one.
makes me wonder if American,British or Japanese kids need to spend 400 on textbooks or not... if yes, then its a norm for 1st world country, and wellcummed to Singapore...
Logging Off. "You have 2,631 messages stored, of a total 400 allowed." don't PM me.
My school books last yr (I study in ACS(Indep) ) costed me close to 200... no where near than 371 bucks. Answering the ques on what happens... you have to get a loan from one of the fianance companies. I am the 'pioneering' batch who is using the Tablet PC... Going sec 2 next yr.... one of the worst batches in the school!
there was a art item among the purchase.... why art things so expensive ? it is just sec 1.. anyway art is not that important.
why loan ? didn't our education system should be teaching us to be financially wise ?
This is serious crap..
During my time spend $8 buy a ten year series
Do some of the typical qns inside confirm your A1 for that subject..
Extra stuff like thumb drives, tablet PC etc doesnt make sense
