That's not the only way students get screwed up. Here is another way: Some classes now have the so called "web assignments", set up for the class. That is in order to complete the assignments for the class the student is FORCED to log in to a web site where he/she can access the homework, which means that if the student did not buy a book for the class he/she has to buy a code to access the homework online. Such codes cost almost the same as the book. It is really an easy way to increment profits, one has to buy the book or the code or risk not passing the class. It should be up to the student to decide to buy the book for the class. Some students sometimes decide to buy a used cheaper book, or the book from the last semester will do in most cases, and yet others can pass the class with class notes, internet and books from the library. But I suppose the students' way to save a buck is not a good idea for those producing the books. Really, I don't think creating a web site for class assignments is not with the intention to help the student, it's just to profit themselves. It would so much easier just to take the class and all I need it's my book and do my homework, but with this online setup I now have to have internet access, another expense. And how about when the students buy an expensive book for over $100? Just to sell it back at the end of the class for $40? What a rip off!!! Sure, it would be sold back to student for at least double the $40. I always thought students were to be helped, but ...
