How to Find Cheaper College Textbooks

How to Find Cheaper College Textbooks By TARA SIEGEL BERNARD, NYTimes BUCKS blog

"College textbook prices rose about 6 percent, on average, every year — that’s twice the rate of inflation — from 1986 to 2004. And there’s nothing more infuriating than paying the sticker price on textbooks (well, with the exception of tuition itself), when many other books are available at a discount. The cost of buying the textbooks can easily add up to $1,000 a year or more."
