IT certainly does NOT go to the authors who do MOST of the critical work and put in their own expertise - that's for DAMM SURE !! mad

I urge ALL my students to buy: (1) USED, (2) paperback or electronic (cheaper), (3) from other students, and (4) on Line. I also recommend they NOT sell their used text to the bookstore but find another student and strike an agreeable price (usually between 50-65% of "New" list price) ! Bookstore traditionally pay 25-33% for used book and resell at 65-75% of the New price. Avoid the campus bookstore like it has the plague ! wink
