And so there is really no surprise that only 17% reported purchasing their textbooks at regular cost from the bookstore16

So why are faculty not all over this?Biggest factor is awareness.Time to look.In some cases there is no open textbook available.25

Perceived quality27

I would not have bought the text book for this course because it's an elective. I would have possibly walked away with a C, now I might actually get an A- It is easily accessible and convenient. Material is easy to understand and follow I personally really like the convenience of having the complete set of chapters on my computer and even accessible from my phone if I need it. I like that I don't have to lug around another text bookIt's free and it's a great money saver

We know that students like them.28
