Find college textbooks at the Google Play store
College students can spend hundreds of dollars on traditional textbooks, especially if those books sport hardcovers and are the latest editions of what a publisher has to offer. But students can often save a whole lot of money by opting for e-books, and with a mobile device like an Android tablet, it’s possible to pack tons of books on a single device.
E-books tend to be cheaper than their print counterparts, and with an Android device, users have the opportunity not only to buy their e-textbooks, but to rent them as well — which can allow users to save even more money. With lots of books available and major textbook makers offering number of books, grabbing a mobile device and shopping the Google Play store is a great way for students to get the texts they need at prices that work for them.
Ready for learning
Among the textbooks in the Play store are offerings from major publishers such as Pearson Higher Education, Mcmillan Higher Education and Random House. Users have plenty of books on offer – from Pearson Higher Education, for example, students studying medicine will find books like “Nurses Diagnosis Handbook,” “Pearson’s Handbook of Laboratory and Diagnostic Tests: With Nursing Implications” and “Pearson Health Professional’s Drug Guide,” with most of the books pricing in under $34.
From Mcmillan Higher Education, books like “Authoring a Ph.D” and “Writing Papers in the Biological Sciences” can help students create the papers and assignments they need to succeed. And Random House offers plenty of literary works and novels, as well as books on subjects such as coding with “CodeNotes for ASP.NET” and “CodeNotes for Oracle 9i.”
There are lots of other books from all three publishers and more, as well, and Google’s rental program can save students as much as 80 percent on their e-books.
