Taxes on university books?

With all the threads about the draconian customs and tax charges on packages received here, I'm concerned about university course books being taxed too. Has anyone 'safely' received course books/materials here from another EU country? Any tips to ensure a seamless shipment?

Books have a lower percentage, so 200 chf is tax free, as long as the books cost less & are declared as such it will be fine.
