    Were they not relevant to your course? Text books can be quite costly? Maybe you could ask your tutor to see which text books they recommend?

    They probably did recommend those books. It's not unexpected to get a mandatory texts (i.e. you need to buy them) and then not use them.

    I had to buy a laptop because I didn't have one. In terms of books I only bought 3, one second hand, the others as E-books but very cheap. Other than that We had access to a lot of the books in the library.

    That's proper annoying, know how you feel, studying Business in Marketing but I've been using a platform called Perlego.com which offers academic ebooks. Check out, it's way better than wasting money.

    It would definitely be the desktop PC I built. Decided to be edgy and get a desktop instead of a laptop because it's better value and I don't see the point of laptops in lectures anyway.

    Motherboard broke 2 weeks ago, but until then it was useful!
