Course Smart offers about 5000 eTextbook titles. Once again the price is about half of what you will pay for a printed textbook. A nice thing about the Course Smart titles is that they allow search, printing, highlighting, note-taking, and copy and paste capabilities.
Students who buy an eTextbook at CourseSmart gain instant access to their book and then have access anytime and anywhere they need it.
Get an edge on this semester’s classes with free search/highlight tools and instant access to your course books at coursesmart.com
One drawback of the program is that eTextbooks are sold in an online or downloadable format, as a subscription for 1 semester (180 days), 2 semesters (360 days) or 3 semesters (540 days) depending on the title.
But then again how often would you go back and read the digital copy of a textbook once the class is over? I have hundreds of ebooks on my harddrive that I never read. Also CourseSmart customers need to be from the US or Canada.
