It is not a secret that the students are now in such situation that they have to put the whole fortune in order to buy textbooks as the prices exceed the financial possibilities of the average student. Besides, they have to pay a lot of money for their education. Besides during the last several years the prices for the textbooks went up in four times! According to some data, all textbooks can be found at campus stores, but the prices are too high, but in the other bookstores the price is not lower. So every year for the students starts from finding the alternative cheaper resources, though some of them still buy books in these stores. To the best of our knowledge, as the alternative I would recommend you to look required textbooks at the bookstores, which sell the used books, on the Internet. Some students follow the idea to lend the textbooks, either from other students or from colleague. This problem still exists while only few authorities try to find any solution to this problem, that why each day this problem becomes more and more urgent.
It would be useful for you to know, that, actually, high prices are just one side of the medal. There are several factors that influence such increase. First of all, it is the bad competition on the market. So to say the bookstores have provided their own monopoly. As such aspect exists this means that the prices would go much higher. You may say that there are also bookstores which sell the used textbooks and online stores. But, to tell the truth, this is not enough to make a good competition, so they cover only small segment. Secondly, such prices are mainly caused by the reason that nowadays there are so many textbooks’ reviews and updates often not required. And finally, the publishers state that the production costs are also too high.
As far as the issue is concerned, one of the good solutions would be to use electronic book instead of the traditional ones. Moreover, it would save more costs for paper and ink. If to make a closer investigation of the issue the electronic books will be much cheaper. Besides the content would be interactive, so it would simplify the studying process and would raise the students’ interest. Furthermore, they may include any other tools which will be also very helpful. For example, here may be at the same time some audio and video files, even some educational games or something else. On the other hand, the teaching model would also change. Some tasks may be checked directly by the computer etc. And the students would have to use them worldwide!
