How much do school bookstores spend on text books.
Im trying to research how much publishers charge schools and bookstores when they buy books. On average what a typical school budget is for new textbooks. But Im having a hard time googling for it.Ive gone to a few publisher websites but in order to even attempt to place an order I have to register and account...
If I were in your position, I would try the direct approach. Visit a campus bookstore and ask to speak with the manager. Explain your project and ask if you can copy down a list of fifteen or so textbooks which the store handles and the cost which the publisher charges. Then I would ask for the names and telephone numbers of the local representatives of those publishing companies, contact the reps by phone, and again explain my project. I would ask if they could give me an estimate of the publisher’s cost for producing each book on the list. (They might be reluctant to give out that information, but it is a place to start.) You might not get an answer for every book on your list, but if you get enough examples, you really don’t need to quote the entire list. To get the budget information, try asking the school principal or vice principal. It will be a welcome change for that person to help out a student with a project instead of dealing with the usual headaches. If those tactics do not get you what you need to know, you might also try discussing the project with a research librarian either at a community college library or public library. They have amazing ways to find out stuff.
How much does a college student typically spend.
I’m starting college in a few months in San Marcos, Texas and I was just curious how much a college kid usually spends? Including going out on weekends (to Austin and such), snack foods, sorority fees and monthly trips home. Laundry and meal plan is included. It doesn’t have to 100% accurate, just a guess….
Hi!Well here is about what I pay per month…$128-180: Sorority Dues$20-40: Alcohol (often less)$20-40: Shopping/OtherI usually don’t spend more than $300 per month.Money goes fast in college, so be sure to budget!!!Other than that… I don’t have a car on campus, my meal plan is included, and that’s about it. Oh, and I pretty much never go home because I live 6 hours away.Don’t forget to budget for school books if you have to pay for those. They can be as much as $500-600 per semester (check out chegg.com for cheaper prices than your book store).
How much do you usually spend on books and school supplies for college.
I’m going to be living on campus next year, and I happened to get lucky because I have some stuff already (storage bins, computer, printer, and some supplies for class). I might have to spend money on supplies such as binders, paper, pencils… etc. But how much do students usually spend on college textbooks?…
I usually spent about $400-$500 on textbooks alone. School supplies are never a problem for me– I always shopped on Black Friday or right before school started for school supplies so they were usually cheaper.I reccomend getting used textbooks 100%. Half.com is a great place to buy textbooks.
College students, how much cash do you spend.
College started just a week ago for my son and he has already gone through $170. He is on a full meal plan and we bought all of his books, computer, printer, clothes, snacks and supplies. What else do college students spend their money on? How much “allowance” would you expect to have for a semester in…
Wow he’s got it easy…I’m in my third year of university and I pay for everything myself. I pay for my tuition, books, rent, groceries, utilities, internet, transportation. I always find my funds going lower than originally anticipated too and sometimes it takes a while to figure out why, often you spend more money than you realized. Some other things I spend money on that he may be spending money on:-extra snacks/food (even if not needed)-alcohol (don’t be surprised)-movies-new clothes once in a while-dinner out with friends-datesAs you can see, other than the things you listed (sounds like you paid for all the basics), the only other things we tend to spend money on are for recreation.You should put him on a budget. Tell him you are only going to give him say, 100 or 200 per month in extra spending money (depending on what you can afford or what you deem reasonable). Once he goes through that money, that’s it, no more is being handed to him until the start of the next month. Stick to your word, even if he doesn’t believe you and spends the first month’s money right away and comes asking for more. Soon he will learn to budget his money better and maybe can better learn a dollar’s value.
How much money does an average college student spend.
How much money does a college student spend per month on clothes, books, food, gas, bills, insurance, etc? Excluding what they actually have to pay to go to college.
This is when you need to do a budget. It will be different for everyone. But here’s the main things people have in a budget, so you can write one up for yourself. If you don’t know the cost of certain things, estimate or ask around.RentElectric/gasWatertrashphoneinternetgascar insurancerenter’s insurancecar license plategroceriescredit card paymentfun (but stick to the budget!)Figure out how much each of these things is per month. Then take your income, whether it’s from a job or your student loans or whatever, and see how much you need to set aside each month for the essentials (depends on your situation what are the essentials). Then never spend more than what’s left over on fun stuff and non-essential stuff.
How much do teens and college students spend on their parents gift.
I’m very blessed in the way that I get a lot every year on Christmas and my birthday from my parents. I usually don’t have much to spend because of car payments but I feel a little selfish for how much they spend on me and I never give the anywhere near the same amount in return. Most of the time I make…
It depends. Most parents know you are limited in funds. They may even be helping to pay the costs. Whether it be school or washing or housing. I think the best thing for most parents is the effort. Unless asking for a particular need; gagets, an ipad2 or an Home Depot gift certificate I would think that almost any effort would be welcome.My parents always say they have enough and actually want to get rid of things. When I was in school and had limited funds, I would make homemade gifts. Can you cook? Do crafts? Visit more? Even the childish coupon book- with things like “Free for one whine free phone call”, will visit and not ask for money” LOL. Just find a small note pad and write them down.You could also see if they NEED anything. Like lawn care. Offer to weed a few times. Pay for a dinner. Clean their home. Buy a pre-paid phone card (hope they call you). Make a CD of their favorite music or music from family events. Make a video of their home movies.The actual amount isn’t really the point. Its how much thought you put into it- how much you really thought of their needs- NOT yours. So to answer your question: spend what you think your parents are worth!
How much does a college student spend a year.
Other than tuition, room, board, how much does the average college student spend on books, personal expences, etc?
A LOT! Room and board, and tuition alone usually cost around $5,000+ per semester. What you said books depends all on where you can find them. For the person who wants brand new books from the books store will spend anywhere from 300-1,000 per semester. My fiance had to buy one of his books new from the university- specific university edition only sold brand new … he’s in graduate school it was a $480 book!!! If you don’t care about brand new books but still straight from the bookstore from the university expect around 400-700 per semester(my brother does this and that’s what he averagely spends) If you don’t care the condition or where you get your books anywhere from 100-300 per semester. For me this is my first semester so I was taking easy like bio 101, math 108, english 101, etc so I could find my books practically anywhere and in fact I bought my bio book for $5 perfect condition. I bought my 6 books for this semester for about $150 all used not a single one from the university. Personal expenses that goes into SO many different things. It depends on if you live at home still or not. If not you bring into consideration food, laundry soap, all those other things. Either way though you have to bring in coffee they buy, lunch/dinner or breakfast they will buy out, booze of course, gas(commuting gets expensive) which you could easily be spending anywhere from $30-$100 per week
On average how much would you say a first year college student spends on text books.
First year of college this fall.
Easily new books cost $500. Here are a couple of ways I saved money on books though:Buy used books through third party sellers on Amazon. Get the ISBNs of the books you need in the school book store. Then search for those ISBNs on Amazon. There will be many “International Editions.” If you read the descriptions carefully, you will be able to get exactly the same book, only in paper back form. Book sellers sell the paper back version to lower income countries because they know that someone studying in India probably can’t spend $500 on books. Also, buying through Amazon provides protection from frauds. You should read about the protection Amazon provides. I don’t have experience using other book sellers, but I’m sure many of them are just as good.Befriend upperclassmen. If you know that you will have to take the same classes they did, you can make a deal to purchase their old books. They will get more money than what the college bookstore will give them for their books, and you will pay less money than what the bookstore will charge. Be sure to make the deal contingent on whether your teacher will use the books when you take the class.
How much does GradeA college students spend on study.
I’m not sure we’re talking the same terminology. My answer will interpret “GradeA college student” to mean a student who goes to a highly competitive private college like Harvard or Cornell, and “spend on study” to mean what he spends on tuition, books, room, board, and fees.In the US, the annual cost of a highly-ranked college is usually between $40,000 and $45,000.A motivated student can get an excellent education at a public college, spending substantially less, but that degree will not have the status of the more elite college’s.
