7 in 10 Students Have Skipped Buying a Textbook Because of Its Cost

In the survey, released on Tuesday by the U.S. Public Interest Research Group, a nonprofit consumer-advocacy organization, seven in 10 college students said they had not purchased a textbook at least once because they had found the price too high. Many more respondents said they had purchased a book whose price was driven up by common textbook-publishing practices, such as frequent new editions or bundling with other products. 7 in 10 Students Have Skipped Buying a Textbook Because of Its Cost - Students - The Chronicle of Higher Education.
