Why Textbooks & Education Material Can Cost So Much These Days?

Author : Jessica Moorhill

If you have recently started college, or even if you've already been there a couple of years, you have probably wondered at one time or another why textbooks & education material can cost so much these days, right? There are actually a variety of different factors which determine the prices of college textbooks. Some of them pretty simple, some of them a lot more complicated than the scope of this article can cover.
The main reason, however, quite simply stated is that a college textbook costs so much BECAUSE IT CAN. Sadly, there are only a few different publishers of college textbooks, which means that the market does not force publishers to offer affordable textbooks in order to stay competitive. Secondly, unlike regular books that people buy because they WANT to, college textbooks are something students buy because they HAVE to in order to pass their classes. This mandatory purchase model means that cheap textbooks are often few and far between.
Luckily, in recent years, many students have gotten smart and rather than buying their textbooks in the college bookstore or at expensive national chain bookstores, they have started to buy textbooks online. Purchasing college textbooks online allows students to enter into a more competitive market, which means more affordable textbooks and other course materials.
Websites such as offer international edition textbooks at dramatic discounts, helping students in many countries significantly reduce their college expenses. also offers super fast, three to five day shipping to most countries and if for some reason you receive the wrong book, you can return it for a full refund.
College tuition and housing already cost far too much. You deserve cheap textbooks. Buy textbooks online in order to get huge discounts on the books you need for not only your core required classes but advanced classes for your major and minor as well.
