Straight out of high school, I went to community college. I hated it.
I ended up dropping out after completing a semester and a half. It just wasn’t my thing. I wasn’t ready.
In the fall of 2007, I decided to go back to school to find a career.
I attended online college so I didn’t need to worry about purchasing books. All my books were provided to me online and was included in my tuition costs.
Now that I’m in my graduate program, I am attending an online and ground campus college that requires me to purchase my own textbooks.
I forget how expensive it can be! These books are not cheap! (Which is a whole ‘nother story!)
CampusBookRentals allows you to rent a textbook for a fraction of the cost of purchasing the textbook.
For my current class, I needed The Skilled Helper book. I purchased it used from Amazon for $69.94.
From CampusBookRentals.com, I could rent the book for 130 days (over 4 months) for $38.81! I could have saved myself half the cost!
Better yet, my class is only 7.5 weeks so I could save even more money by renting the same book for 55 days for $33.77!
I have rented the ebook copy of my textbooks before (not something I recommend – it is really hard to take an open book test with an ebook!) but I will definitely remember CampusBookRentals.com when my next class starts – they send real books!
