You can avoid from being tripped by a banana skin, but you cannot never ignore the existence of assignment. Every time when thinking of assignment, other than thinking of how to complete it before the due date, should also consider of how to realize it into a hardcopy form, definitely a handwriting-based assignment will not be accepted upon submission, therefore, this is why at least each student must own a printer. An inkjet printer should be enough if you plan to use it until your graduation. Other than printing of assignment, for those who always suffer from computer eye strain, instead of reading slides from monitor, it is better to print it out and read, by having a hardcopy of slides, you can read it whenever you want at any places which will be more convenient when your computer is not around. Most of the campuses do provide printing service, but most of time, printing fees will tend to be more expensive if compare to self-printing.
