One way that students can really save is by obtaining books for free. Project Gutenberg is one resource that English majors will find invaluable. At this site students can peruse a vast collection of classics that have entered public domain. In past students seeking assistance with their studies had to pay for privilege of that help by purchasing study guides. Today that is no longer case. Cash-strapped students can now visit Spark Notes for free downloadable study guides as well as free downloadable classics.
Students who elect to buy online will no longer be able to resell their books to college bookstore at end of class, but that doesn't mean that they are stuck with textbooks. Many web sites that sell textbooks also offer students option of selling their books to fellow bargain-seekers. This allows students to easily recouping a portion of their money.
Textbooks normally consume a major portion of a student's budget, but that doesn't have to be case, because while cost of tuition may be set in stone price of textbooks isn't. By taking time to do a little research on best textbook values available college students can save money now rather than acquiring debt to be paid back later.
