One of my professors was able to convince a publisher to publish an existing textbook, but only with content relevant to his course (cut a bunch of pages out) and in black and white to lower the cost a bit. It had his name as co-author or something like that too. Idk how he did it, but he saved his students a ton of cash.That’s why even when I couldn’t find the correct edition for my courses, I never bought Kind words are like honey sweet to the soul shirt until the class was already underway and I found that the previous edition wasn’t usable. Which it always was.
Best Kind words are like honey sweet to the soul shirt
When i took chemistry, the professor was the author of the required textbook. Kind words are like honey sweet to the soul shirt syllabus specified that you needed to buy the latest edition of his book. I heard that he would change things around in his book every year, and have a new edition put out. Apparently, the changes were just enough that it would screw you up in class when he would be lecturing and telling you what chapter/pages/etc. you needed to be looking at and studying.That’s awful. At the college I went to when a professor made you use their book they asked us to give them $20ish from each person then they went to staples or officemax and had it printed and bound there. I really appreciated that part about my undergrad. Now in grad school my stuff is just through vitalsource and it’s ok, not great but ok.
