College student here.  People need to stop complaining about the price of textbooks.  Shop around and you'll find a decent price.  Thirty or forty bucks for a book is no more expensive than what you'd find at a bookstore, and I guarandamntee you that somewhere a store has it for that price, even if it's a little beat up.  Who gives a 						****					.  Suck it up, books cost money.

Dude, have you even bought a textbook recently? My one class, ONE CLASS, had a textbook that cost $260. Because it came with the necessary online code. And you can't buy that used.

Textbooks should be covered in Tuition.

Someone should take a college to court on this. My college requires certain books that are only sold at the campus bookstore and cannot be reused because they have no binding, ensuring that they receive the money for those books. They then jack up the price of those "books" which I'm pretty sure are printed off at the bookstore to prices around $200. As far as I'm concerned, forcing someone to purchase something that only you sell and making that thing unreasonably expensive is a lot like running a monopoly. I'm sure they would argue that, "you don't have to go to college," but still. Something should be done.

Come live in Estonia, I've never bought a textbook in my entire life, we have most of them in our University libraries and we are not obligated to use one anyway.

What pisses me off more is teachers whom make you buy textbooks that you'll hardly touch in class, but try to profit off the students as well. The professor of course is one of the many writers whom were involved in the making of that particular book, so they get a royalty fee from the books that are 'required' for class.

Paid a 200 dollar book for a drawing class. Never used it, and I couldn't return afterwards because there was a new edition that came out. The book was optional.

Textbooks are unrelated. I'm torn between relishing in something the government hasn't touched and wishing they would regulate it.

I know that feel . I can't even buy some of them used because they come with an online code for a homework site.

Freshman in college here.

I just spent $160 on textbooks. One of them being around $100. You really only have reason to complain if you are forced to buy new books, which are like 50% more expensive than used.

I spent the time to check several places online to see if I could get them cheaper. Other than that, get used to the prices. As long as tuition keeps going up, expect book prices to go up.

This is in Washington Square Park, aka, NYU.

Repping NYU, violets till I die. Your football teams wish they could beat us.

Considering that's Washington Square park and those are likely NYU students, you could say the same thing about tuition.

So I started pirating my textbooks.
Then the textbook companies introduced the on-line homework assigning system that requires another $75 license that can't be pirated. We just can't win.

Ok everyone, I'm going to let you on a little secret. When getting a text book I check the following in the following order:

1. I first check torrents for PDF form (about 20% are on there).
2. I check to see if the school library has it.
3. I check other sources for cheap price.
4. Share the book with others.
5. Rent the book.


Unless you want to keep a hard copy of the book I suggest amazon for used books.
