Oh, I don't know... I get substantially better grades and "wowee, I'm 
impressed" type comments from profs when I haven't bought the book or 
attended lecture, than when I have done both/either.  Which is fine with 
me, given the majority of texts I'm required to read for class aren't ones 
I'd voluntarily touch with a ten-foot pole.
