    Bagging Books Brouhaha: Getting the timing right 

    Finals are getting close University of Dallas students and while studying may be the first thing to do there is also time to look at the schedule and see which days are good for selling your books back. For others this is a time to catch those students selling books and intercept them if they have just finished a class you need to take next semester.

    Here is the link to see what the exam schedule is: Finals 2010 Schedule

    One thing that cannot be helped is timing. Sometimes the students who have a class on the first day of testing get their books for a higher price than students with the same class doing book buyback at a later testing day. So what to do?

    Do not despair. Sort out the books that can be used for buyback early and see which ones are not needed for a upcoming final. Those books are the easiest to sell on the first day of buyback.

    Second, sometimes there are lines of people waiting for their turn to buyback a book. Strike up a conversation with a person in front or behind you and see which classes they are taking. They may be ending a class that you are taking next semester so exchange information and get their books.

    Third option is to talk to a teacher. They can see if they can reach students that have taken their class a previous semester and see if they still have their books. I lucked out one year when I took a Spanish class and my teacher contacted a former student of hers and I got the book from him. Maybe it can work for you, but don’t expect this option to be open with every teacher.

    Enjoy the Christmas break while at the same time do not stress out over future Finals. I hope to pass and not get angry at myself when grades come in. Happy hunting.
