Free breakfast with DSE + cheap course books

The student organization DSE will give out free breakfast next thursday morning (the 6th) at 7:30 in front of the following buildings on Campus: 101 (entrance A), 116, 306 og 421! So nice of them!

Most of you should know by now which books you need for your courses, and although you get a 10% discount in the bookshop on Campus, it can still be expensive, so here are some tips for you that can help you use less money on books:

To buy or not to buy?

If the lecturer notes that you don't have to buy the book, it's not just to be nice. It's because in that case, you should only buy it if you're really into whatever the course is about. If the lecturer tells you it's a good idea to buy the book, it really is - and then you should buy it.

PDF books and DTU's Digital Library! 

Try and google around. Unfortunateley, I only know one place where you can find some of the coursebooks in PDF file format, and that's DTU's Digital Library:

I recommend that you gather a group of people (maybe even your introduction week group) and arrange an introduction course (approx. 1½ hour in the library in Building 101):

More links to where you can find PDF books will be awarded with lots of facebookhearts (<3).

Used books

In Denmark it's all about re-using and recycling stuff for the sake of the climate. One bonus is that it's also good for your bank accounts, because the DTU students will happily sell you their used books cheaper than in the bookstore! Look around the boards in the buildings on Campus for notes where people list books for sale. Network. Or use Usedbooks, DTU's own webpage for selling and buying used books. I've used it myself with great succes!

I hope this information is useful. :)
