Sooo these are the books that I will be needing for my First Semester/Term at UBC.

And I will just be mentioning the REQUIRED books. And I’m listing the prices right off of the UBC Bookstore website.

R= Rental Price


BIOL 112 –

  • IclickerN: $41.3o ~ U: $31.00 ~ R: $18.90 …(remember iclickers can be used throughout your university education…so it may be a better choice for you to either buy a new one, or a used one, instead of renting it.)
  • PKG 6 PC CUSTOM BIOLOGICAL SCIENCE 2ND EDN VOL 1, 2 & 3 W/ MASTERINGBIOLOGY ACCESS CODE & SHORT GD TO WRITING  – N: $159.75 (this is the only price listed on the website) ..and make sure that you get the RIGHT edition…it’d be pretty helpful to do that. 😛

      • The lab is actually optional to attend… you can do the assignments from home. You only need to attend the first lab to get login information, and learn how to use the MathSheet program 😛 I didn’t like the assignments though, but at least I didn’t have an extra textbook cost to worry about ;d

        Normally I’d say yes, but if profs assign questions out of the textbook for homework practice, there’s a chance the numbers don’t match up with the newer editions. I haven’t asked anyone who took MATH 100 on how profs administer homework assignments, though… you probably need to ask someone who has taken the course 😦

    • ahh well.. i’ll survive.
      question about physics/chem labs…labs are every second week….so in the week we don’t have a lab….do we have a tutorial???? and is it mandatory??? so no day off…? 😛

      • That only applies to PHYS 101 labs 😦 Hardly anyone likes them. You will all hate it. LOL
        For CHEM, you have alternating wet/dry lab weeks, so you only really attend class every 2 weeks, and in-between that, you prepare for the next lab, and finish up the last.
