There are no new books for Spring Semester. We will continue to use: 

   

  • Kunz & Chomsky, CONTRACTS – A CONTEMPORARY APPROACH, ISBN 978-0-314-189996-7 (West 2010)   
  •  Woodward & Zierdt, CONTRACTS SKILLS & VALUES, ISBN 978-1-4224-7067-1 (LexisNexis 2010)  
  •  West's Selected Commercial Statutes, Carol L. Chomsky; Christina L. Kunz; Linda J. Rusch; Elizabeth R. Schiltz; ISBN-13: 9780314282552.  If you purchase a used one, make sure that it has the 2010 amendments to UCC Article 9 in it, so that you can use it for “Secured Transactions” when you take it during your 2d or 3d year.
