OOOHHH, you don't get any money back from your used textbooks. Oh, cry me a
river. That is the way it has been for decades ... and I don't remember
anyone I know whining about it. But then again, you are one of those whiny
liberals that has to have everything done for you, or someone else insuring
every risk of your fragile life, no matter what.
I will tell you though that in my experience the better students who did hte
best annotations of their textbooks were always able to command a higher
resell. I was once so fortunate to be able to acquire from a friend of mine
an exceptionally well annotated textbook. She had gotten an A+ in the
course. With her book I did the same the following semester. That book
resold for the next two years at near the original price because of hte
exceptional notes. So take good notes. Create your own value (a new concept
to you I am sure), and use the situation to your advantage. Remember, no one
wants to buy a used textbook from a class slacker ... it has bad karma.
