I like 2's thinking. It's still disrespectful, just like what the professor's doing. Respect is a two-way street. If he's not going to give it to OP, he doesn't deserve it back. Although, going that out of the way to try and disrespect him might be a little drastic.


34- The perfect 3 point plan. Idea, Market, Profit. You'd pass an economics class with a model like this. Except that it's illegal, but no one's watching them so who's watching you?


On one hand, very smart, recouping the losses, on the other, the prof can sue you for copyright, since you are making a profit from it. What I would suggest is that, the whole class only buys one book, scan it to PDFs, and distribute between classmates discretely.


In the UK, the teacher does not decide on your grade, they mark your tests, but a handful are sent off for moderation to ensure he is giving fair grades to everyone.

Some publishing companies give rewards to professors who require their book. I had a few classes that we never even needed to open required books for the course.

The great higher education system at work! I had a professor in a masters' level BA course require we purchase a $60 'manual' at a copy center.... turns out it was all photocopies of articles from business magazines, some over 20 yrs old!, and I later found out he got 50% of the sales back in his pocket! Of course, he didn't lecture on any of the material, and it was never in a test. Oh, and the 'manual' couldn't be sold back as a used text, of course!!!!
