Hi

Starting as a newbie first year in a few weeks in NUIM

Doing an Arts Degree, so I'm looking for books for Psychology, Computer Science and Maths.

PM me if you have books for these courses for sale at reasonable rates, and I'll be around all of orientation week to buy them if the case should lend itself.

I'm starting now in Sept, doing History, German and Maths...how many of the books do you reckon are necessary? And which ones could I get out of the library and all...

when your lecturer recommends a certain book, go get it straight after. I wouldn't bother with the library, they do have like 3 copies and there never available.. I don't know about your other subjects but for History, there are a lot of little books you have to get to help you with your essays in your tutorials, you will find all this out in the upcoming weeks

there like only 10 euro or so but there are a few to get..

Yikes! I didn't realise the books would be so expensive!
I'm doing Music Technology with Geography and Maths hopefully.

Do we find out when we start what books we need or is there somewhere online that we can check?
Also do we need to own all the books? Or can we borrow from the library?

yeah I know, my biggest regret was buying my first year books brand new, they cost me 100 euro for just 2 geog books .
Some departments already have a list of books that you can purchase, but just wait until you attend your lectures and find out what books that the lecturer recommends.. Emm you might be able to get some of the books in the library but as I said before, they do be quite limited. Your lecturer will explain all this to you

If that's for EN356 , most of that is on google books. He'll set you reading for every lecture from it, so if you're into buying the massive, heavy books, go ahead but the bits you need are on google books. It's really heavy and quite expensive, just a heads up.

Haha yeah, cheers. I saw it was on Google Books but I thought if it was cheap I might get one to have. I'm not bothered now.
