Using Myer’s PsychologyTextbook? | READ FREE!

One of the biggest expenses of going to college is the purchasing of text books. Wouldn’t you think that more people would go to college if they knew that their textbooks could be cheaper or even free? I hesitated so many times to take the basis college courses just because of the costs of textbooks. is a service that is tailored to help college students with their text books by providing a service of matching your textbook from introductory courses with a Matchbook textbook that you can read online for free.

Matchbooks are written by a leading scholar, created using a rigorous editorial process, customized to match the table of contents, chapter order, chapters and sections cover the same topics and key terms ; peer reviewed by psych professors using Myers.

How does work? starts with your high quality open textbook that are used for large intro type courses such as Psychology and then they match it so you can read your “matched book” online for free!

Are you taking General or Intro to Psychology?

Great news! If you are taking General or Intro to Psychology this Spring Semester and your text book is “Psychology” Myers 9th edition, there’s a free Matchbook for Myers Psych that you can read online!

No Expiration Dates, No Fees… All FREE

MatchBooks is a project of Flat World Knowledge, the world’s largest publisher of free and open college textbooks.

This idea is perfect for the college student trying to save money, even makes me want to look back into some courses that I never took because of textbook costs.
