some readers can be pricey... one of the costs people don't usually consider is the royalties paid to publishers -- in many cases readers have articles from several text books -- imagine if you had to by them all --

Pretty much if you goto Cal, you make at least one visit to Copy Central a semester. Because it seems like the whole school has to buy a reader from Copy Central, the lines can get very very long. One way I've found to get around it though is to take advantage of their long business hours. There are virtually no lines if you go at 10pm instead of 2pm. The other annoying thing is the no refund policy. I've personally never needed to return a reader but I've heard of people who get stuck with their unwanted readers. Their prices also do seem a bit high but there's not much you can do about it because they have a monopoly on the reader market.

Copy central is the place to get your readers for certain classes. The lines tend to get quite long and the price for the readers then to be quite high. Unfortunately, there is no other place to get it.

PROS: Nice place, clean environment
CONS: long lines and long waits

Copy Central is one of the widely used copying locations by Berkeley professors. I have purchased readers for numerous classes. While prices seem unreasonable sometimes since the readers are non-refundable, it's the student's responsibility to know whether they will stay enrolled in the course. Their lines during the first 2 weeks of class are horrible and can sometimes extend to the end of the block.
