College Textbooks and eBooks

My daughter just graduated from high school and started college. I’m very proud of her! She finished her first two college classes over the summer and now she’s taking four more classes. I went with her to the campus book store to help pay for the books she needed and Wow! I’m still feeling the price shock! Her biology book was over three hundred dollars and the workbook was another seventy-five!

We found the same book on Craigslist for $50, and the workbook was included! This was a great deal, but I’ve never felt comfortable buying on Craigslist. You never know who you’re going to meet when you make the purchase!

With this in mind, I felt compelled to start writing on this blog again. But instead of writing about eBooks, iPads and Nooks, I’m going to focus on college textbooks. We’ll cover such things as where to find the best prices, advantages of buying versus renting, and comparisons of companies in the business.

If I come across something in the ebook genre that’s interesting, I’ll pass it on to you as well.

Free eBooks

Hello everyone! I’m so appreciative of all my loyal readers! I haven’t made a real post on this site since December and I’m still averaging over a hundred readers a day! Amazing!

I was looking through The eBook Directory and was surprised how much it has grown! They’ve got something for everybody! Grab a cup of coffee and check it out!

Another place worth looking at is the Khan Academy website. They’ve got free courses in math, science, finance, humanities, test preparation, and more. The math courses start at single digit addition and go all the way through advanced calculus. Their goal is to offer, “A free world-class education for anyone anywhere.” 

Here’s a link to an article that’s just fun to read… Check out The Motley Crew’s page entitled, “100 Mind-Blowing Facts About the Economy.” I’m sure you’ll enjoy it! Please “click here” to go there!

Khan Academy… Learn Almost Anything For FREE!

Some people need help with a single subject. Other people can’t afford college, but want or need the knowledge and skills that come with a higher education. Still others might need help with the most basic of life’s skills. Regardless of what your needs are, Khan Academy can probably help.

Khan Academy has thousands of videos and lectures prerecorded on such diverse subjects as finance, algebra, basic arithmetic, history, biology, computer science, and much more. The best part is you can join the academy for free and study at your own speed. I’m currently reviewing algebra so I can help my daughter with her homework.

Khan Academy is turning education upside down! Teachers are having their students watch video presentations from the academy at home and then having them do their homework in class! Teachers can actually move around in class and teach instead of standing in front of the classroom giving lectures until the bell rings.

They’re also an incredible resource for home schoolers. Khan Academy leads you through their subjects step by step (and even rewards you with merit badges and points for your educational achievements!). Khan Academy also keeps track of your progress so you have a record of everything you’ve done. It’s really easy to join! Actually you’re almost a member already! You click Longin at the upper right of their homepage and use your Gmail or Facebook userid and password to become a member. It’s that easy!

Please go to Khan Academy and look at all they have to offer. Just “click here” to go there!
