Why Value-Focused?

Since 2006, the cost of textbooks has increased by 73 percent ¹—or more than 4X the rate of inflation—with the cost of a single book between $200 and $400.

The College Board recommends students budget about $1200 per year for textbooks and supplies.

As a consequence, 65% of students opt to go without textbooks due to the high cost.² Of those, 94% were concerned that their decision not to buy the book would affect their grades.²
