Hello

Hopeing for some help. I am looking to do some self teaching, as I can not afford more college classes at this point. I am looking for text books, that either have testing and answers in the book, or i could order the study guide with it. I am doing searches, and haveing trouble tracking something that I am sure would allow me to study, and then test myself. ( I remember more that way)

I am looking for a variety of things, accounting, geometry, statistics, early child devoloment, physcology, any history ( i have managed to graduate with out a single history class) geography, meterology, writing, etc.

anything? anyone?

please let me know

thanks

http://www.paperbackswap.com/forum/view_topic.php?t=76733  This topic - Free Classes- was posted a day or two ago on Club Members Thoughts (I think that's the title - second area on the list!

Also, if you get texts, sometimes you can go to the publishers website and find study questions.

Most colleges also have their textbooks in their libraries.  You can go there and usually borrow them for use in the library.  I do that sometimes when I know we won't really ever use them in class.  I would imagine that that would be an easy way to see what you are into and like.

Molly- thanks so much for the site, got caught up in it last night. that will help alot. My husband is looking at me like i am the biggest dork on the planet. But I am currently working on child development, american history and meterology.

Jennie, I use the ones on the college campus I just cant take them home and really study them, and I dont have any time to spend in the library between work, and a two year old. But thanks for the thought. I really appreciate it. going to try the library to supplement the site mentioned above.

You're welcome...you sound like me - interested in a little bit of everything.  The hubbie smiles indulgently, then says, "You know, maybe you can answer this question...:"  LOL

The truth is i really like to learn. especially in a structured setting,, where you read the chapter and do the questions to go with. And when hubbie calls me a dork or a nerd, i simply point out I am not the one in the family that knows every line of every star trek ever.:)

Also try goodwill. They get tons of older textbooks that are generally not too badly outdated, but just aren't worth much money if a newer edition has come out.

I have about 6-8 college chemistry textbooks of my daughters from the early 1990's.  They are available on half.com for less than $3 plus the shipping, so there is no point in my listing them there.  They all have ISBN#'s and I would be happy to send them --one or more to anybody for maybe 2 for 1 credit.  Is anybody interested in a full list of the #'s?  They are very heavy to mail, but I'll do it if anybody is interested instead of tossing them in the recycle bin, which was my plan.  If I gave them to Goodwill, they would sit there forever, I'm sure.  They aren't too out of date, but I think all have come out in later editions.   Send me a PM if any interest.
