While I was still teaching (I've been retired since 2001 after too  
many years teaching Physics at a local Community College) it seemed to  
me that most of the expense was because they went over to fancy color  
diagrams and kept on removing topics and doing a worse job of  
explaining things. All flash, no content, just like I've, for the most  
part, seen everywhere else.

Good Luck,
