If you do not have a desk copy of the book you will be using, please remember that you WOULD have one had you answered any of my three e-mails this summer reminding you to let me know if you need a desk copy.
The day before class is not the day to suddenly tell me that you need a desk copy.
That is why I e-mailed you three times to ask. So that you could be prepared.
So I will order your copy today, and you will just have to wait and hope that the publisher is not terribly busy.
