-You do not have to buy the textbook. But it is highly recommended that you solve questions from a textbook. There is a copy of the 7th edition of our textbook on the reserve. Search the library website for it. You can also solve exercises from this early edition. Also, if you come to office hours, you can use my book for an hour. If you end up buying the book, I recommend that you also buy the student solution manual.
