The College Textbook Ripoff is Worse Than Ever
Advertisements [?]
Once again, it's open season on American college students. The textbook publishers and college bookstores all have hunting licenses.

The books for just one of my classes cost $333.10 at the Student Ripoff Store. They were shrink-wrapped (of course) so I had to buy all or none. I stared at the price. I tried to shop around, but one of the books was available nowhere else - it was "customized" for that particular class.

Unlike some other victims of this scam, I didn't absolutely need that particular class. I dropped it and signed up for a different class.
