    The internet. I've never felt the need to buy a book. Just search 'easy/cheap/student recipes' and you'll get loads of ideas. Or if you fancy something in particular e.g. a new chicken dish, just search for that.

    There's an awesome one simply titled "The Student Cookbook". It's also available in a vegetarian version. 1000 recipes for...students is pretty good too. Oh, and the Bero book is pretty much an essential if you ever want to bake.

    I'd advise going to a decent sized waterstones and looking through their selection of cookbooks. Different people like different styles and are looking for different things.

    If you want a rubbish, eating for 10p/meal cookbook, most student ones are fine.
    If you're looking for complete recipes that are easy to follow but proper, sensibly priced food: Jamie's Ministry of Food
    If you're looking for a cookery course in a book: ONe of the Delia Ones, Cooking with Jamie or I saw a beautiful book yesterday called something like "what to eat and how long to cook it for". It was £30 but looked fantastic.

    i find i use the internet much more than any cook book. Plus you can watch videos for key techniques etc.. much better than any book.
