While the bookstore offers convenience and the opportunity to support a local business, here are some alternative methods to obtain the textbook, WSJ and calculator:

Textbook –     

1.          Buy online - comparison and linksbuyer beware!

 

        2.        I have placed a 7th edition on reserve at the library. If you have a 6th edition, the supporting

                   text information will be fine (I don’t use test bank questions) but you’ll want to copy the

                   homework pages from the 7th as that is what we will be working Wednesday night and the

                   solutions for the 7th are in your notes.                      

Wall Street Journal – 15 weeks for $30

An alternative to subscribing to the WSJ is to access the text only through the Hale Library website. The process is described at the bottom of the Required Reading page. I personally feel like not subscribing to the WSJ is a false economy and that you’re cheating yourself. Try it for one semester. Your call of course though.

Texas Instrument BA II Plus – eBay link – don’t pay over $20 or so total because you can buy new for about $30. Please don’t purchase a Ford Falcon grill package by mistake.
