Textbooks are a painful expense for college students. A single textbook can easily cost $150, so taking four courses a semester can quickly leave you with a bill of $500-$700 per semester.
Campus bookstores have long had a monopoly on textbook sales, but luckily that is quickly changing. Students today have the option of buying their books online from a variety of booksellers. They also have the option of buying their books new, used, and even renting them. With this increase in competition, textbook prices have fallen.
Finding and buying the right textbook for you class is easier than ever. One website, Textbook Price Comparison will show you the lowest prices online for you textbook. Just search for your book and it will display its price and condition at dozens of different bookstores.
