I'm taking Chemistry 142 next quarter and I was wondering if anyone knew where I could find images of the Chem textbook (by Zumdahl) and if you could tell me what edition it is? (I'm going to check out used book stores first to see if I can find it) Thanks!

Can anyone point me to directions for syncing UW e-mail to an android phone? Pretty please? UW's IT Connect has been hugely unhelpful as it focuses on iPhones.

Thank you in advance from a luddite!

Subject:Importance of Textbooks?
Posted by:wockys.
Time:11:17 am.
Next quarter I'm enrolled in a class that has a textbook tagged as 'optional'. How important is it to get the book when it's tagged optional? Does that mean I'd be able to cover all the material in class and will be totally fine without it?

I'm just not that into spending $100 on a 2 credit course if I don't have to :/

I am currently enrolled as a linguistics major at UW. I am considering pursuing the Computational Linguistics Masters when I graduate. It states on the site, however, that applicants need to have experience in Computer Science up to the 300-ish level. I have no experience whatsoever in computer programming, so I was wondering maybe I shouldn't consider this path? I heard the CSE classes 142 and up are extremely difficult if you're not detail-oriented (which I'm not). 

I was wondering if anybody could provide me more information about CSE classes at UW and any more info about the Computational Linguistics Master? I am currently enrolled as a Junior so I have to be careful with the classes I take. If I do end up taking CSE, I fear my GPA will be screwed up. :P

So where can I find announcements re: inclement weather for UW? I live in Federal Way and I'm not sure how the roads will be tomorrow, especially since I don't think it'll warm up above freezing 'til after the last bus to U-District leaves the transit center.

Subject:Transferrring credits
Posted by:virulent_venom.
Time:11:02 am.
Hey everyone!

I took a year off from UW and during that time I took a few courses in a community college. How would I go about transferring those credits? I'm currently a junior. I looked at the website but all the info I found is how to transfer credits when one's applying as a transfer student, but I would be applying as a returning student....

Awhile back, I heard about UW charging higher tuition for baccalaureate students who don't finish their degrees within four years. Is this true or am I mixing it up with another school? If it is true, how does it affect double-majored students?

Hello there,
I don't know if these kind of posts are allowed. But I just got assigned for temporary housing up at lander. First off, what is it like to live in temporary housing? Is it difficult since you are living with so many other girls??

And second-- is there any girl out there  who needs a roommate in ANY of the dorms?

              In the my article «THE MORDOVIAN OFFICIALS DO NOT NEED THE HUMANITARIAN HELP» (!!! On Russian language !!!) from 9/3/2010 was informed one more proof that interests of the simple people are alien to the authorities of Mordovia expressed in seating on a rubbish dump in vicinities of capital of Mordovia of cargo of the humanitarian help for those who has lost all in a fire. I had been made the message to go to this rubbish dump and to make photos of the thrown out cargo.
              However, in it I was already outrun by program "Vesti" (the popular news program on Russian TV)

              On their video it is visible that on the rubbish dump have thrown out things intended for that who has lost all in fire, more than it is possible to put in multiton car "KAMAZ".
              Here the next proof, that the authorities of Mordovia neglects interests of the people. The guarantor of the Constitution of Republic Mordovia Merkushkin should bear responsibility for this first of all. Only for this fact it is necessary to demand its resignation from a post of the Head of Republic Mordovia, and this offer is directed to the President of the Russian Federation.

Subject:Free Amazon Prime for students
Posted by:theonlytime.
Time:3:59 am.
Amazon is currently giving free 1 year memberships to Amazon Prime (free 2 day shipping, $3.99 overnight shipping) to current students with a .edu email address: http://www.amazon.com/gp/student/signup/info I'm not sure how long they're offering this (it doesn't say on the site).

Just thought i'd give fellow students the heads up on this in case you haven't heard about it yet. This is going to save me a ton on shipping textbooks this year!

Time:4:32 pm.


My name is Tony and I work for a local production company. We're looking for people who use their blackberries for work or school and do work or schooling that they love for a series of commercials. We're looking to see how they use it, what apps or features they use the most, and really what they do for work and how they love it. Feel free to contact me at the email included for more info. Thank you for your time.

Time:10:11 pm.

So I registered for fall quarter classes a while ago and am currently in the process of buying my books. I am going to take linguistics 400 fall quarter. I looked on the Ubookstore's website and noticed that the price for that book is $80ish bucks. I looked on ebay and found the fifth edition of the book for $5...which is awesome :) 

My question is, for those who have taken linguistics 400 in the past--can I get away with having the fifth edition of the textbook? I am asking this because i know that there is a newer 6th edition out there.   I am just wondering if the fifth edition is any different from the sixth? 

This is probably a really dumb question, but I just want to make sure that I am making the right decision buying this book. I'll go to the Ubookstore myself and ask if nobody can answer my question.

Thanks so much in advance. :)

Subject:Advising and Orientation?
Posted by:wockys.
Time:3:10 pm.
Sorry if this is a stupid question, but I signed up for the August 18th-19th orientation and I was wondering what time it starts each day and where we're supposed to meet?

If you know anything about it or can link me to a page that tells me the specifics that'd be great! I couldn't find any info on the FAQ page :/

Subject:Continuing and Online Education
Posted by:ilovetetris.
Time:5:28 pm.
Does anyone have experience with UW's Continuing and Online Education Courses? I'm thinking specifically of Nutrition 300. The website (http://www.pce.uw.edu/course.aspx?id=2180) says that you can start anytime and have to finish by 3 months after you enroll, but I also found in an FAQ that there's a minimum 2-month completion time for online courses. Does this mean that I wouldn't be able to just do all of the coursework and take the exams within 4 weeks (sort of like taking an online A/B-Term course)? Also, has anyone ever had a test proctored at Schmitz Hall? The site says that there's a $40 testing fee to get exams proctored at Schmitz.... know of any places close to campus to do it for free? Thank you!

Amazon is offering a free 1 year subscription to Amazon Prime (Free 2 day shipping!): http://amzn.to/bSH8jP

This is being marketed towards college students but all you need is a valid .edu email address.

Now is a time that I wish I was still in college. Oh well, what can you do?

Hello hello,

Ok I'm one of the annoying transplants who is moving from southern CA to Seattle. My fiance was born there and currently works there. We're getting married, I'm starting law school at UW. We want to live in Capitol Hill but the only thing is that we adopted two little puppies a year ago (Maltese, girls - sisters, each weighs less than 6 lbs.) whose mom had been abandoned in a foreclosed home. We are fine living in a studio, don't about the amenities, just want to make sure that the puppies are ok. I've spoken to some building managers management & they say they are pet friendly but add that if the dogs bark we'll need to get rid of them.

while my dogs don't bark a lot, they have also not lived in an apartment building before and I am worried that they will raise a ruckus when left alone during the day for the first few weeks. I'm worried about signing a lease and having to break it because I will not give them away.

Do you folks know of any apartment buildings that are VERY pet friendly? some ads say that there are breed restrictions, which dogs do they restrict? or do you have any suggestions on what I can do in order to try and train them to not bark? is that even a possibility? I have about a month to go before I move, so I can work on them. I don't want to put any kind of bark collar on them or get them de-barked.

Besides Capitol Hill are there other areas to look for where there are small homes for sale and still have a fun walkable neighborhood? if worse comes to worse we'll have to rent a small house or something... but we would rather live near Capitol Hill. I don't mind not living super close to UW, but we don't drive a car so our home needs to be relatively close to bus lines and still safe for me to get around when I come home late at night.. I've lived in LA and Berkeley and i've been mugged in both places.. but it would be nice if I could avoid having it happen again ;)
