A barrel of free books from Kaplan makes a great back-to-school haul

Mel Martin

Kaplan Publishing is offering quite a few free eBooks through the iTunes store, but you can only access them on an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. It's a great deal if you're heading back to school or just want to stock up on some quality reference material.

The books are in the categories of college prep, graduate studies, law, medicine, nursing and education. The book are free from now until August 30.

Kaplan first became well known to students preparing for SAT and other exams such as the GRE, GMAT, LSAT and many others. The company then expanded into publishing on many education topics.
