I've used chegg.com for quite some time now. It's basically the only store i go to rent or buy books. Not the overpriced, bad customer service book store that they have near the universities/college.
As a low income kid struggling getting by with student loans, chegg really helps out me get my books.
Well this is basically how you use chegg
You enter your ISBN(book code) number for the book that you need. Then it will show you if they have that book in stock for you to rent. They have a nice book selection but once in a while, they don't have the book your looking for. However i have yet to encounter that problem. Now you have a choice to rent the book for the semester or the quarter or summer session.Basically you can when and how long you can rent it for. Btw you have to have a credit card for rent the books. You will get the books within around 7 to ten days. And the returning the book is free shipping via ups.
Overall, don't buy textbooks, rent them.
