It is back to school time and one thing that hits college kids and their families hard is the price of textbooks. They are incredibly expensive often and I often hear that in the end they are not even used very much by some professors. That would make me a bit crazy!

I found this item for my weekly infographic that gives some interesting statistics about college textbooks and if you are better off buying new or used or if you should rent the textbooks. Heck, I did not even know you could rent textbooks.

If you went to college, which method worked best for you?

should i buy or rent textbooks
