National concern about the high cost of higher education typically focuses on higher tuition costs. However, in a recent national survey of college students, Nebraska Book Company|Neebo, found that more students (55 percent) worry about textbook costs than worry about the cost of tuition (50 percent). While almost all students surveyed (95 percent) aim to find a way to save on textbook costs this Spring, with most (74 percent) saying they will buy used books and just over half (54 percent) planning to rent their textbooks, some students will turn to less honest methods of saving, with nearly half (47 percent) intending to look for pirated book copies online and many (25 percent) simply photocopying required texts themselves.
