I'm thinking of using sheet protectors/laminate on the cover and getting a binder that has larger than average surface area (cause then the book will be bigger than the binder) but same size rings - the rules only ever designate ring size.

It's perfectly legal to put textbooks in, displayed previously, but I have no idea how to get a hardcover in a three ring binder without critically damaging the book or having some part stick out.
Hence making the area of the binder bigger may help with the sticking out problem (I'll have to jurryrig something myself if I can't find one big enough though).

However, anyone got better ideas before I try anything?

Thanks!

If you don't care about the extra work, photocopy every page onto standard 8.5'' by 11'' pages and then put them in the binder.


Sometimes textbooks will have loose-leaf binder editions in addition to hardcover ones - colleges sometimes use those (and it costs the students a fortune to get them if they’re required > - < )

Why exactly do you want to put a textbook into your binder?

For binder events - I mean, if they allow it my textbook already has most if not all the needed charts and graphs as well as statistics.
I'm familiar enough with it to effectively navigate it and with the increasing amount of binder events why not?
It's more effective

I would say to just photocopy the pages that you think are significant to the event... I mean, if you have the textbook, then that probably means that you're studying/have studied the subject, right? But at the same time, you probably don't remember every specific number or detail about something, so you probably don't need the entire textbook to fit in your binder. And then mid season, take some practice tests and go to competitions and if there are some things that appear on those tests that you couldn't answer and are in your textbook, then photocopy those pages as well. It'll cut down on a lot of work, flipping through your binder (trust me, a big binder is NOT fun to flip through with... no matter how familiar you are with it...) and it'll make getting the "textbook" in your binder easier.

Just wait until you're 5 over and you're beingpassed by people going 20 faster than you, and when the car behind you is tailgating inches from your rear bumper. And, yes, it was less than a foot. I measured it by backing up to a identical car that we own...

Driving, like everything else, takes practice. More than likely, you will go up on a couple curbs as you learn. The important thing is to build up from a certain comfort level where each time you drive, you get a little bit further outside your comfort level. Before long, driving a car will become second nature.

And to any intermediate drivers out there, when merging onto the freeway, it's much easier if you can maintain your speed and just slip in right behind a driver already in the lane. It's a bit of a timing game, but it's easier than it gets a rep for. Just my unsolicited driving advice coming from someone who sees way too many "nervous mergers" out there. ;)
