Low Cost Text Books

Textbooks can be expensive. Renting text books is an affordable option and you don’t have to worry about spending a lot of money on a book you will only use once. Many of these places give you the option to rent, buy, or purchase after renting. Of course, we recommend that really important books you purchase (like desk references or anthologies that you may need for other classes). It’s worth it.
