"Already grappling with skyrocketing tuition and fees, college students also must contend with triple-digit inflation on the price of textbooks. With the average student shelling out $1,200 a year just on books, students, professors and policy groups are searching for ways to circumvent the high cost of traditional textbooks."

$1200 a year?!?

Maybe it is more the publishing companies to blame.  I don't know, but one thing is for certain, the students are being taken advantage of.
