Buying textbooks in the 21st century is a ridiculously stressful process. In the old days, the only option students had to buy textbooks was to make a trip to the campus bookstore, wait in long lines and pay an exorbitant amount of money for required course materials. Today, not only are campus bookstores not the only option, they’re generally not the best – or most cost-effective – option.

However, it rings true that when it comes to textbook purchasing options, there can often be too much of a good thing. Should you buy or rent? Purchase an ebook or paper copy? Go with used or new? And once you narrow down all those choices, the number of sites to choose from can be overwhelming. It’s a stressful and dizzying process.

So, how can you ensure that you’re making the best textbook decisions and price compare without losing valuable hours out of your life? Easy. Use BIGWORDS.
