Free College Educational Material in PDF

Ever wish you could have had the resources available in a college class, without actually having to have registered for it or take tests?  When learning about CNC programming, lathes, and mills I came across a handy way to get free college level ebooks though Google.  The way it works is that you type in the following script below in Google:

site:edu filetype:pdf SUBJECT
Replace SUBJECT with whatever search term you want.  Google will search every .EDU address for any PDF file with the subject that you put in it.
I found a wealth of scanned text books and course material.
With universities charging an average of $90-$600+ per credit hour, free is a very good deal if you don’t need the actual credit, but want the information.
