Free Textbooks for Great Savings

With the rising cost of education, it is not easy being a student. Furthermore, textbooks add to the financial burden of students around the world. However, if you know where to look, you can find free textbooks for great savings.

Typically, students spend $200 above for a hardcover book, but could not sell it the following year because a new edition is required. With this, the internet world has started to respond. Today, there are several websites that offer free textbooks that students can use. One website, the Connexions is a place for collaboratively developing, rapidly publishing scholarly content on the internet. Teachers and professors could build reading packages by choosing material from several sources and adding their own, thus creating a custom-made, downloadable textbook for free.

Another option, CourseSmart is a site where students can buy digital copies of their textbooks directly from the publishers at up to fifty percent discount. Students could opt to download the book or read it online and could print some sections. OpenCourseWare is a website where all MIT’S course material is published. Anybody could download assignments, course outlines, lecture notes, reading material and lecture videos for free. There are many more online sites that offer textbooks for free; some even encourage book sharing among students.
