My husband is going back to college since he was laid off work. This semester he has 5 classes. One of them is beginning algebra. The book for that class was almost 200 dollars just by itself. All of the ones he needed came to over 500 dollars. He ended up being able to take some of them back because one of the other students had taken some of the classes and let him borrow the books. Even with that he still had to pay for some computer stuff for two classes. It was still almost 200 dollars total. That is a lot of money. I don’t understand why they cost so much. That takes up a lot of the money for college right there. Too much of it if you ask me.
