Textbooks suck—and we’re not the only ones who think so. Students in Tennessee have channeled their frustrations with textbooks into a catchy rap video. Dropping $900 on textbooks in a semester hurts, but we’re digging that they turned their textbook pains into a video to highlight the rising cost of books and course materials. Watch the video below and see how you can relate!
The average college textbook costs students $175. If you assume most students take 3-5 classes a semester, you’re looking at hundreds of dollars a term on textbooks! It’s no wonder then, that 7 in 10 college students have skipped buying a textbook due to cost.
Instead of succumbing to a 1.5 GPA after spending hundreds of dollars on textbooks like the guys in the video above, start studying with free textbooks from Boundless. With SmartNotes, Study Guides, Flashcards and more, Boundless textbooks are way better than textbooks that you’d buy in the bookstore. Boundless also has free, totally open textbooks on a variety of subjects (like Biology, History and Economics) that you can access and cite without any login.
