YES about saying NO to expensive textbooks. I know Prof. Eisenberg used Grinstead & Snell's intro to probability to teach Math 310, which was free, yet comprehensive.

I believe my economics professor stated that the prices certainly weren't the result of expensive paper or the hardcover material. I myself wonder why so many textbooks are so sickeningly expensive. Maybe there needs to be a price ceiling of $30 or something on them or maybe professors should have to be responsible for writing up their own "class texts".
