College textbook spending declining?

10 Aug

Students feel they spent a little bit less on textbooks and other course materials this last year compared against 2 years back, and virtually $50 less matched against 5 years back, according to a study released Tues. by the National Association of College Stores. In the survey, scholars said they spent a average of $655 on needed course materials in fall 2011 — down from $667 in 2009 and $702 in 2007. The varsity stores organisation assigned the fall to school bookstores offering more used textbooks and providing more rental options. But the survey didn’t ask scholars why they believed they were spending less than scholars before them.
