This is what I've done for my pathology class this fall. I bought the same book listed in the syllabus for $6.50 with shipping on Ebay so I can use the search feature on vitalbooks and study without distractions using the text book.I love the search feature. Nothing beats being able to search for the exact thing you want to find in 125 humongous text books. I think it's a good addition, but at times it would be nice to also have the hard copy. Books like Netter's Anatomy I purchased because I wanted to stare at those pictures and not at my laptop.
