  • Out of more than 2,000 students surveyed 65% said they didn’t buy textbooks because of price at some point. Of those who made the choice not to buy textbooks, 94% said the choice made them nervous about their grade.A copy of the report, “Fixing the Broken Textbooks Market: How Students Respond to High Textbook Costs and Demand Alternatives,” is available on our website at http://uspirg.org/reports/usp/fixing-broken-textbook-market.
