The caliber of students from the School of Accounting and Finance is very high. I'm impressed by how good they are, how smart they are, and how sharp they are. It inspires me.

Where to Buy Your Books and Calculator
It may seem like a good idea to buy your books early but we recommend attending your first class to hear what's required and other options that may be available.
Visit the Book Store website to find out about your textbooks, store hours, refund policies, author events, the print-on-demand service, and book sale dates.
Save money by buying your textbooks at Feds Used Books, located in the lower level of the Student Life Centre (SLC). When you've finished your first term, you can sell back the ones you no longer need!
As AFM students you take Math/STAT courses so you need to follow the Faculty of Math calculator requirements. These calculators can be purchased from the Bookstore.
You can also buy a University of Waterloo Student Agenda but the Accounting and Finance Student Association (AFSA) creates one specifically for our students and will be handed out at Orientation.
