Hey! I'm wondering about how much per semester is the average amount students spend on books? I know it varies but a general estimate would be really useful, thanks!

So you're right, it does vary A LOT depending on how many classes you take, where you buy your books, and what kind of classes you take. I'd say to be safe you should be prepared to spend between $300 and $500 but again it really does depend on a lot.

If you buy your books used from places like amazon they will much cheeper than if you buy them new from the book store. If you're taking english classes where you need a few small paperbacks at $15 each, you'll pay less than you would if you were taking bio and chem which each have a text book around $150. But I'd say a max amount would be $500 (I paid that once) but it could be as low as $200 or $300.

What do you want to know about SMC?
