Yes, the college texts are mostly from amazon, but once you buy the book the website has lots of PDF study aides and the publisher will sometimes help out. It's really a great thing. Their websites have chapter study quizzes and such that are easy to get to on the ipad's browser. It's such a wonderful tool for students.

If your classes are online, you may not have an issue. Online classes are built differently than traditional 1t1 classes and frequently do not use the same textbooks, or even textbooks at all. I have just finished teaching an online class that required no textbook because all the delivery material was online. Just a thought.

You might also check out Coursesmart. They have a number of college-level texts available for rent and have both an iPhone and an iPad app.
I rented one of my books for this semester there and it's a passable experience (not great, but not awful).
Once books end up in the Kindle or iBooks stores, I think the iPad will see more traction as a learning device.

Yeah the books I need are NOT even on the Kindle store! What kind of education am I going to get lol. I had to break down and buy an actual book!!! lol Hopefully eventually I'll get a class that uses a decent enough textbook that has digital copies.
Either that or I am bad at searching and just didnt find it in a pdf or electronic copy.
