Cost saving for students – Free textbooks!
Students can choose to read or listen to online version for free, or print out all or part of work for just the cost of printing.
In a recent study, the College Board found that undergraduate students can expect to pay upwards of $1,200 a year for textbooks and supplies. The cost of textbooks impacts student success and retention. Students who participated in the 2012 Florida Student Textbook Survey answered that, at least once over the course of their academic careers, the cost of required textbooks caused them to:
|63.6%||Not purchase the required textbook|
|49.2%||Take fewer courses|
|45.1%||Not register for a specific course|
|33.9%||Earn a poor grade because I could not afford to buy the textbook|
|26.7%||Drop a course|
|17.0%||Fail a course because I could not afford to buy the textbook|
