ok /biz/ quick question to any of you that went to school in the us
would it be worth not doing my course assignments if they're only worth 20% of my grade?
i'm low on cash at the moment and don't want to spend >100 dollars on a book for a single class.
does this make sense or am i retarded?
Try to pirate the books or borrow one. Try the campus library. If you're really desparate then go to the campus book store and just read the books and do the assignments there. Or take pictures of the pages you need. Hope this helps.
Oh yeah, you're fucked then. They're really desperate to get your money. What I don't understand is why professors continue to allow them to do this. If it were me I'd drop the class, but an 80 isn't a very good grade, and that's if you get a 100% on everything else. If you can afford it at all, buy the damn scam, but I'd recommend dropping it unless you don't care about your GPA.
