Our campaign is making textbook affordable, at the same time, students could do something which helps too!
Here we got some advices for Students!

2. Buy used.

  1. Yup, textbook is relatively expensive , i do agree those method can save student’s money. Especially we may use some books for few lessons only, therefore we should buy decide which books are really needed

  2. The methods you’ve mentioned really do help students saving money. I’m borrow textbooks from uni library as well, but it’s a bit inconvenient when you have to borrow them before every tutorial. I think e-books might be a really good alternative to hard copy books, because it’s cheaper and a lot more convenient.
