thankfully though we have course related costs so it doesn’t really matter right? you are right, it doesn’t matter.
on the other hand, it does matter because somehow it’s possible that you’re shafting the economy. in a lovely capitalist society like ours we have things called “options” and “choices” and while you don’t really get too choose which textbooks your course recommends, you do get to choose where to buy them from. there’s possibly a large number of places but the two most obvious are UBS or Vol.1.
I personally couldn’t care less where people buy their textbooks, but here’s good news: Vol.1 is usually cheaper – in my experience by about $10-$15. That’s about it. it’s a longer walk but then again it’s close to KFC and super liquor.
if you decide to want slightly cheaper books than the university sanctioned UBS, go to Vol.1
and if you do, tell them otago massacre sent you. they won’t have any idea what that means of course because they’ve never heard of us and our noble cause and we don’t get paid for this in any form (unless insults are a form of payment)
