Flash books is a partnership between Kent State, Barnes & Noble college and textbook publishers to bring required course materials at a cost significantly lower than what a student would pay for the equivalent new materials. Access these materials electronically through the Blackboard course only. To date, this program has saved Kent State students over $1 million. Additionally, courses that utilize Flash Books have materials available to the student on, or before, the first day of class.
Those courses and associated Flash Book charge are detailed by semester.
