Yeah, I know, go to the school library, right? Except it's distance education, the physical university is in Minnesota. The 5-county library system here in South Puget Sound (Washington) does not have the books--I checked.
Does anyone have any ideas?
ETA: Wow people have been really supportive and I can't tell you how much it means to me. The best suggestions, I think, have been:
~Ask the Professors for suggestions/assistance
~Check with local College Libraries and maybe study there
Those are all going on my to-do list. If anyone has any other suggestions that don't say "here's a cheap place to buy books," I would love to hear them!
EDIT TWO: I have the proper editions or those one previous headed my way via Interlibrary Loan. I am going to continue looking into the e-book suggestions, but this is closed enough for now I think. Thank you a third time! I will keep my eyes open for questions I can help with :)
