    FAP Textbooks


    I have a couple of basic questions to those who have started the FAP modules:

    1. How far can one go without using the textbooks listed below? (Usually e-learning means there is a lot of information on-line and my question is that can one finish the first few modules without using any textbook?)

    2. Which textbook(s) do you think is(are) the most important (indispensable)?

    Thank you in advance!

    Rent you textbooks? Why not...

    Have you ever thought about renting your textbooks. You can make more money if you rent them instead of selling them... You can do that on www.cool-rent.com. It is up to you...
    For example: lets say you think that you can take $50 when you sell your textbook. Then you can make it like that - the deposit plus the price you take for the rental to be equal to $50 (less or more - that depends on you). And when the book is returned you can return the deposit to the other person.
    It is that easy!
