Digital Textbook

Postby Fleetoffoot4 » Mon Jan 05, 2015 12:42 am

Does anyone have a website they would recommend for purchasing digital textbooks for download? Trying to avoid buying another expensive textbook if it is possible to purchase a digital version for download at a better price.

Any advice appreciated.
Thanks!

It really depends on the specific casebook/textbook for the specific class. In all likelihood, there is not a digital copy available. If there is, where to buy it will depend on the publisher... look at their websites to learn what formats are available. Some of the looseleaf or paperbacks casebooks come in book + ebook formats, but you have to buy the book to get the ebook on CD (and then, sometimes the ebook is a statutory supplement rather than a copy of the book itself).

See for example: http://www.aspenlaw.com/aspen-casebook- ... Supplement

CALI has some statutory supplement ebooks: http://www.cali.org/the-elangdell-bookstore

It's also possible you might get lucky and have an amazon Kindle version, but I suspect this is rarer.

Lastly, you can always simply go to the library reference desk and use the library's reserve copy of the casebook.

CALI has supplementary ebooks that are good. These can be accessed at CALI.org. However, to,access their course materials, one has to log in through the college gateways or subscribe to it.
