Alternativas a Los Costosos Libros De Texto Alternativas a la Librera Universitaria


Byline: Por Marie Wilson Para Reflejos

A la hora de comprar libros de texto, muchos estudiantes universitarios est[sz]n buscando alternativas a las libreras tradicionales, tales como las tiendas cibernticas, los sitios Web de comparacin de precios, los acuerdos de alquiler de libros y los intercambios entre amigos.

"Cada semestre, el nmero de estudiantes que busca alternativas de precios contina en aumento", dijo Jeff Cohen, principal oficial ejecutivo de Campusbooks.com, un sitio Web que compara precios de los libros de texto de mltiples tiendas cibernticas.

La planificacin es clave para aquellos estudiantes que compran sus libros de texto a travs de Internet, dijo Cohen.

"Los libros m[sz]s baratos se venden r[sz]pido. Por lo tanto, mientras m[sz]s se acerque la fecha del comienzo de clases, los precios m[sz]s baratos desaparecen", dijo l. "Los estudiantes necesitan saber lo m[sz]s temprano posible qu libros necesitar[sz]n".

Una ley federal que entra en vigor en julio del 2010 le exige a las universidades que anuncien los ttulos, los precios y los nmeros de identificacin de los libros de texto conjuntamente con los itinerarios de cursos en Internet.

Deanna Gallo, una estudiante de Indiana University residente en Hoffman Estates, trat infructuosamente de venderle un libro para un curso de verano a la librera de Harper College en Palatine.

"Es una edicin vieja, as que no la est[sz]n comprando", dijo Gallo sobre su libro de clase de verano.

Algunos estudiantes comienzan su bsqueda de libros de texto vendiendo o intercambiando libros con otros estudiantes de su especialidad, dijo Steve Mead, gerente de negocios de Wheaton College. Algunos estudiantes de Wheaton College comparten sus libros con sus compa[+ or -]eros de clase y se dividen el costo, l a[+ or -]adi.

Un sitio Web llamado SwapSimple.com facilita el proceso a aqullos que buscan intercambiar libros con una red mayor de estudiantes.
