I don’t know about you all, but when I went to college it was always frustrating to get a bill for tuition, additional class expenses, housing and a meal plan, and still have to pay through the roof for textbooks. Being a nursing major probably didn’t help – those textbooks cost hundreds and hundreds of dollars to buy.
With today’s recession, paying for college can stress out a budget even more than usual, whether the parents or students are footing the bill.
Fortunately, some companies have risen to respond to the growing need for a thrifty college experience. Cengage Learning just launched CengageBrain.com, a website that facilitates textbook purchase or rental. As the country’s second largest textbook publisher, this site has over 3,600 titles available. If you choose to rent a textbook your savings can be up to 70% off what you would have spent to buy the textbooks. In addition to books, you can also purchase e-textbooks, individual e-chapters, and audio books, and other tools to lend a hand with homework and studying. Now you don’t need to mess with textbooks you will never use again or trying to get the school bookstore to buy them back.
The rental process through CengageBrain.com is simple – once you’ve made your selection you will receive the first chapter of the book in an e-book format and can chose your method of shipping. At the end of the term, the renter can print a return label and ship back the book (for FREE). If you liked the textbook enough, you can even opt to buy it.
CengageBrain.com has books for all ages, not just college students. So if you’re a homeschooling parent or even a professional working on advanced certifications, take a look at what they have to offer!
