You sign up for a class and find out that the textbook actually costs more than the credit hours. Sound familiar? You’re not alone. Hundreds of thousands of students just like you are facing the same problem. Fortunately, OpenStax College is here with a solution. Our textbooks are professionally produced but come with a nonprofessional price tag: $0.00. That’s right, online editions are free, and printed copies just cover our costs to produce them. Are you asking yourself, “Hey, what’s the catch?” There is actually no catch. We are a nonprofit organization supported by a bunch of really big foundations that are tired of the status quo for textbooks in higher education. These foundations, with the support of a dedicated team of professionals and community folks just like you, have come together to make a suite of really great, very free textbooks. Interested? Take a look at one of our textbooks on the right. Download the full version, for free, forever. If you like what you see, let your friends know how they, too, can get a great textbook for an unheard-of price.
