(WMC) – It's back to school season for college students and many of them get hit with sticker shock at the bookstore, with some text books now $300 apiece.

WMC Action News 5's sister station found some ways to lower those costs without buying a beat up used book.

See the full story from WTOL here: http://bit.ly/WrX5SH.

Andrew Douglas reminds students to look into renting before buying textbooks; they probably won't need it after the class ends.

Just make sure it is the latest edition; a 3-year-old edition could be very different and very frustrating to use.
