More free textbooks - a link I nicked this time from yet another degree-site. These are free downloads - via Amazon - for Kindle or anything that will run the free Kindle app - PC MAC Android etc. The link is to the free accounting e-textbook. You can scroll through - and access - all the other subject choices at the bottom of the page. If you need to, you can also get the free Kindle app for your device from a download link provided.

These are actually pretty brilliant, at least in terms of the idea. Have you gone through any of these textbooks (either the Amazon freebees or the OpenStax ones) to ascertain their quality?

I've had a look at a couple of the OpenStax books and at a quick run-through, they seemed excellent. And not pared-down versions, in ANY respect. Check them out - see if you agree. :)

I agree. I wish they covered things others weren't already covering, but they're still on track to expand quite a bit, so it's all good.
