Why Are Text Books So Expensive?
Like a lot of college students, I returned for my fall semester this week. Getting my schedule taken care of was the easy part, then I proceded to the book store. Yep, the dreaded campus bookstore, where you know you're completely capable of blowing $500 bucks on 3 books. It's just silly. A lot of subjects don't change, like history..So why must you have the latest edition? Did the Roman Empire and the info surrounding it change last year? NO!! Go and get the last 2 editions, that you know will be cheaper, and you're professor gets upset about it.
A lot of students buy their books online, not just for the added convenience but it saves a ton of money on the book itself, but you'll pay shipping. Almost like a complete losing situation all the way around - how do you prefer to buy you're text books?
