Chegg Book Renting Review: Worth Your Money?111455
Current as a no-man's land in between buying and stealing, renting your college books has been an option for money-savvy students since the Neolithic era, or at least farther back than I am prepared to look up. Chegg.com has taken a massively large bite out of the college book-renting sandwich, a sandwich that whilst maybe lacking in taste has confirmed to be a preferred among cash-strapped college students, rivaling even the ever-classic "PB and Ramen on Rye". Providing thousands of titles, Chegg.com tends to make it simple for students to rent their needed college books at discounted prices and return them after a set period of time. Of course, the only problem with this new deal (in addition to the reality that no great FDR jokes are coming to mind) is that you are, unfortunately, only renting. Take a look at a couple of of the pros and cons of Chegg.com.
Comfort. For these of you out there for whom the mere believed of opening a textbook tends to make you queasy, much much less the potential hassle of purchasing, using, and then reselling a textbook, renting books might be a prime option for you. Chegg lets you rent a textbook for just the length of the semester, even giving students the added bonus of an simple return. Of course, if you do happen to lose a rented book or find it eaten by a mysterious canine you will be needed to spend the full price of the textbook.
Great situation books. Even although most of the books Chegg.com is renting out are used, Chegg does a fairly good job making certain that the books you're sent are in much more than just decent condition. Chegg does permit some highlighting, but for the most part the books you'll be renting will be in top-situation, save for a slight odor of inexpensive vodka.
No lasting value. Renting, as glorious of a concept as it may seem at first, does has some inherent flaws. Think about it - even although you are saving initially by renting instead of flat-out purchasing, at the finish of the day (assuming your days last for semesters) you will have nothing to show but a receipt and an empty wallet. When you buy a book, nevertheless, you spend more initially but finish up with some actual property that you can then sell or at the extremely least use for starting fires.
