I read them for self study continuing education credits.
nope. i got mine right here and i graduated last year.
The people in my class who got first-class grades were (a) the downright native geniuses, and (b) the people who had no social life because they spent all their free time knuckling down and working (and of course (ab), both of the above).
So unless you're a bona fide genius, you probably want to get on with the reading. (Though if I was telling my past self this, I'd probably say "work a little bit harder, go to a few more parties, and watch a lot less TV").
No you are not the only one - because I stop over your place and read your textbooks in my spare time too. :)
I'm now reading a very thick programming book during my semester break
Nothing wrong with knowledge
I like that the top answers are pro-studying. It makes me think a little more of the average 'EPer'. And it also reminds me I have about 75% of a text book to get through that I started last week. ( Self study ).
No, I read them and professional journals.
Of course not. It's what I used to do and it's how I managed to graduate with honors.
I loved my biochemistry, biology and physics textbooks. I collect very old textbooks on genetics; they are great!
That's a good thing
in 2013, portable gadgets are everywhere
probably - unless you've got a very weird stalker
