Why University Students Prefer Photocopied Materials to Textbooks
Things have changed a lot. My parents will always tell me how they buy textbooks in their school days and how it helped them in their studies. I began to compare then and now and have come up with some of these reasons why university students now prefer photocopied materials to textbooks.
- Lecturers have decided not to Recommend textbooks to students.

- Lecturers Prefer to set questions from their Notes.

1. Lecturers have decided not to Recommend textbooks to students
Some students expects the lecturers to give them the recommended texts before they proceed to purchase one from the book shops. Instead of reminding their lecturers that they need textbooks, they resort to patronizing the photocopied material people to get a cheaper ones.
2. Students have formed the habit of using their money to buy Gala
When say gala, i mean those things that are not related to school work. Most students have formed the habit of using the money for textbooks to buy electronic gadgets like headsets, and Computer games, which is not contributing to the success of their academics. Before you know it, a student may graduate from an institution without getting a textbook for himself or herself.
3. Lecturers Prefer to set questions from their Notes
Most of the university lecturers prefer to set examination questions from the notes they give in the class than from the textbooks. This has made a lot of students to relax, while they look for someone whose notes are complete and then begin to photocopy them. I know some of you reading this article are in this category of students.

4. There is not money Mentality.
When you are always complaining that there is no money, how do you expect to use the available ones to buy a textbook? It is impossible. These category of students are those that can never show appreciation to their sponsors. They are ever ready to prepare lists of textbooks and send it to their sponsors, at the end, they end up using it for other irrelevant things.
5. Boy friend and Girl friend Palava
For those that have not got any boyfriend(s) or girlfriend(s) before, you may not understand this. I know you want to taste and see how it works, but i bet you may not like it at the end. Some students have programmed their minds that instead of using their hard earned money to buy textbooks, they rather use it to satisfy their girlfriends and boyfriends. These students are always ready to accept the outcome. If failure, no problem, if success, then no problem. They choose to economize and use it to buy photocopied materials.
