Didn't you get the huge course book the student center gives?

They don't really hand those out any more. They've almost completely switched to the online course catalog as far as I know.

Gotcha. I forgot about the "going green" campaign that's spreading around. That website linked above is definitely good. I also found it a good idea to go to a professor's website that's teaching a class I was interested in taking and downloading all the notes/homework/tests (hopefully with solutions) for future use. It definitely helped me when I was taking a class and had at least a sample of what to expect on an exam; although I will admit that I did this for math not physics.

Good idea! My math class this semester actually has all the homework and exams given (and solutions) posted now so it would be an excellent idea to check for classes I'm going to be taking and seeing what's up there. Thanks for the idea :)

I don't know if you are in a sorority or if sororities do this but frats most certainly keep a little database for all classes as study aids. There's mixed feelings on this as some believe it's cheating if a professor reuses the tests from previous times he/she taught it. My opinion is if a professor doesn't want to devote the time to come up with new problems, then it's on him :) However frats do take it one step further...sometimes a professor will let the students take the test home to review the marks but will ask them to return it, in frats, those tests get photocopied and stored... so take it as you will.

Also true. We have the biggest Greek system on campus so I guess there must be a few copies around. :)
