You will get more out of this class if you get over any hesitations you might have about writing in your books. No one’s going to pay you much for used copies of these texts, so get over any fantasies about cashing in at the end of term. In addition to underlining passages, make notes on the blank pages at the beginning or end of the text. You’ll need to refer to these notes when preparing for class or writing a paper.
