I was just wondering do most Uni's send out reading lists before the term starts or do you get them in your first week or something. It would be pretty stupid leaving it till then cus everyone will go to the lib and clear out on your subject ? :confused:

Surely it is easier to buy some that you want before hand so no probs when you get there? Then you have plenty of time to order some without getting completely screwed over at Uni branches of Waterstones!

( at B'ham Uni a copy of a tiny Franz Kafka book in german was £14 at my local bookshop and on the net £3.50! screwed over of what)

Some send them out before some wait til you get there. Its often better to wait because some uni bookshops offer 10 or 20% discounts.

I didn't get my booklist till i was actually there, and then it had 7 'course texts' on it - that doesn't include the recommended reading!

If i were you, instead of going to Waterstones, check out the books online - if you're spending £200-odd on your texts, try and find them cheaper, 10% off is a lot on that much money

We didn't get a booklist for my course, there's only 1 book that we absolutely must have.

I already have 30+ law books all costing £20+ and they are mainly 2003 editions so you cant get them secondhand its a hard and expensive lif. lol
For second hand uni books i recommend amazon marketplace.
