Whether you’re a first year college student or you’ve made the decision to go back later in life, there is one thing that doesn’t budge. The cost of college textbooks. It doesn’t matter if you’re taking 2 classes or 8. You’re still going to fork out some serious cash for textbooks. Purchasing used textbooks does cut the cost somewhat, but it’s still expensive. Is there a way to drastically reduce the price of textbooks? Yes, there is.
