If you take a summer school class, which loads 15 weeks of work into 5 weeks, be prepared to NOT receive communication from your instructor about which book you need until the day before the course begins.(Happened to me on 3 different occasions. This can be very frustrating if you are taking an online course and live an hour away/ have a job…etc.) In addition, be prepared to NOT be able to get the book in time to successfully begin the course, (because after all, the bookstore doesn't even open until the first day of class, and 9 times out of 10 they are clueless as to which edition the instructor ordered, how many copies they needed,… etc. Summer school at CSUSM has been a horrible experience, to think that students cannot get an A because they cannot successfully complete work, which is based off of a book which they don't have! …THIS IS A CRIME!

What a half- a@@ed way to run a school.
