If you're starting college, plan on spending on average $1500/year on textbooks. Yikes. And there's always that one required book that's going to set you back $100-$200. Call me a conspiracy theorist, but I think the book publishers are in cahoots with all schools. Why do they keep changing one small thing in a required text? So you have to buy the newest version!
Our listeners came up with a great list of websites offering discounted textbooks or books that you can rent.
