Students Opinions on the  Current Costs of  Textbooks “My opinion about the current price of textbooks is that they are way too high, and when you  try to sell them back to the bookstore you are lucky if you get back half of what you paid for  the book. Also the book store is not even a part of Vol State, it is owned by another company  so we're not even supporting the school with the money we spend on the books. It is hard for  some kids who are not working to pay for books and some families cannot afford to pay these  outrageous prices.” - Ryan Bragg “Currently, I am a new college student. I feel very stressed out trying to find the best deal on  required textbooks for a course. The list retail price of a new textbook is outrageous. I  understand the business of books and that there are many people to pay for the quality  textbook product available, but I do not see the entire value of the books being used in the  classroom. Most of my classes have used only a portion of the textbook in the syllabus and  the rest of the material used is produced by the individual instructor.” - Kathryn Maggart
