Here’s How to Avoid Overpaying for Textbooks

Textbook prices have nothing on us.

Published

on

Studies have shown that many students struggle with paying for textbooks, making it the second highest burden for college attendees after tuition.

But those students can rest easy with Cengage’s new unlimited digital subscription, with a database of 20,000 course materials, for only $119 a semester, or $179 per year. That’s only 45 Starbucks trips, or maybe one trip to Sephora. Cengage Unlimited offers a great deal when compared to the average cost of textbooks per year, $579.

In addition to access to the online database, Cengage Unlimited subscribers can also use technology learning resources such as MindTap or WebAssign. They also have the option of ordering a print copy of their textbook for rental at only $7.99 per book. Seems like a sweet deal.
