Today, I found out that the textbook for my mathclass this coming up semester will be $125. Of course that is beyond ridiculous and so not worth the money. The book is said to be a new edition, but I think it may have been around for about a year or so because the schools bookstore website said that they once had used copies of the book that were being sold at $90.
I checked Amazon and they had one seller on there with positive reviews selling the book for $80 something bucks. It is said to be used, but still in good condition. But I don't want to purchase anything yet before I do my research.
Are there any good, trustworthy, internet sites that specialize in selling new text books for cheap prices that you can recommend??
I would really appreciate your input because I can't be off spending an additional $125 when I have auto Insurance, Tuition, which I'm sure will be over $800, and other bills that need to be paid off by the end of next month.
$125 for a $50 book proves there is price gouging going on in my opinion.
