Shopping for College Software
While textbooks cost more than normal books and the less said about
the on-campus Burger King the better, software is one of the few
true bargains you will find in college. Many software companies
will give an educational discount of 70% or more off retail and
a few will even give their software away for free to students.
With discounts like these, I recommend you stock up on software
before you graduate. This is the one thing I miss most from my college
Also, there are more than a few kind-hearted programmers who give
their software away for free to everyone, even non-students.
Click on the "Stores" tab to find a place to buy educationally
priced software. Click on the "Free" tab to see my recommended
list of free software.
