It is so simple and saved me tons of money. This site rocks and helped save my entire biology class from purchasing a new edition when one we had was very similar. Love you!

Boundless is much more cost effective than current traditional textbooks given their absurd prices of $100+.

My professor took me aside after our last class and told me that I continually made the best grades out of all the students in the course! I couldn't have done it without help from Boundless and the helpful features!
