College Students Give CourseSmart a Try With CourseSmart's Free Trial Offer

World's Largest eTextbook Provider Offers Two-Week Free Trial

SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwire - September 16, 2010) -  CourseSmart, the world's largest provider of eTextbooks, is giving students at colleges and universities across the country the chance to try an eTextbook for free with a new two-week free trial offer. CourseSmart's no risk, free trial offer gives students instant access to an eTextbook of their choice and the ability to experience the unique benefits and efficiencies associated with accessing their required course material digitally. Any online eTextbook featured in CourseSmart's comprehensive catalogue, which represents more than 90% of the core textbook titles in use today, is available in this promotional offer.

"Unlike print rental, which offers the same experience students have had for years, digital is a new paradigm that provides students with the unmatched advantages of next generation technology, such as convenient, anytime-anywhere access from their laptop or web-enabled device, while maintaining the critical elements of textbook content and pedagogy," said Jill Ambrose, senior vice president, consumer commerce of CourseSmart. "We want to make it easy for students to experience the benefits of our eTextbooks and are confident that once they try one, they will want all their textbooks as eTextbooks."

To participate in this free trial offer, students can visit and get instant access to the eTextbook of their choice. Students who participate in the trial will be able to access the eTextbook on any computer, eReader, tablet or other mobile devices with an internet connection.

CourseSmart offers up to 60% savings on 90% of core textbooks in use today in North American higher education, giving students the ability to save money while enjoying the benefits of eTextbooks. CourseSmart's complete eTextbook catalogue is also available on the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch using a free app that can be downloaded from the iPad and iPhone App Stores.

The free trial ends after 14 days or 50 page views, whichever comes first. Additional details about the two-week trial offer are available at
