Hi,

Every student is spending so much money on text books.One thing I noticed is when you buy a new text book for some $x,then after the semester you will lose its value by more than 50%

like wise even if you rent still you are losing

even if you buy used book still you are losing money.

If you buy e-text still you are losing

If you want to sell it in amazon still you are losing.

where do we get value for money is the biggest question after spending money on tution and accomodation.

But isn't the value of something like a textbook subjective? If you benefit from it, I believe it's worth the dough. But to believe that a textbook will appreciate in value, that'll never happen. I think the best method would be to buy a used textbook.

My school only uses textbooks for English courses, but when I do have to buy textbooks, I buy them online from Amazon or wherever.
