College.....Money......Books.......You

The month of September was quite a hectic one for me. However, in the midst of chaos clarity came and in those moments i finally decided what i wanted to study for my masters. I have always wanted my masters before i turned 30. Well, that did not work out. After completing my diploma and degree I had a ton of students loan debts and so now that I have finally figured out that I want to major in (I am changing my area of specialization) I am scare about the costs of tuition not to mention the costs of books. 

We often underestimate how costly books can be in the preparing for college. Of course it goes without saying that your college tuition must be payed. However, the whole purpose of attending college is to exit its gates at the end of 3-4 years being certified for your specific field. This is where I have found that Campus Book Rentals is a life saver. In my day (I am not that old) I spent tens of thousands of dollars on books alone. I kid you not. I still have the books to prove it.

Therefore, when Campus Book Rentals approached me to do a review and I must say they read my mind. I went on their site to see how easy and user friendly it was. I must say i was pleasantly surprised. I typed in the authors of a text (click on the link) that i had used in my diploma year. I was sure it would not come up because in typing i had spelt the names of the authors wrong. Can I tell you it did! Not only did they have it but they also had six different edition of the book. I was like wow!!! For all the searches that i did they had the text in multiple editions. I was so ecstatic.


I also examined their policies and i found that they were great for students on a budget. Not only do they offer free shipping to and fro, you can also highlight in the text books (great for note taking or remembering important points), they offer flexible rental options and most importantly you can save up 40-90% off of bookstore prices. The icing on the cake for me is that Campus Book Rentals donate to Operation Smile with each textbook rented.

So in the equation of college, money and books i think that one of your best bet for economical books is  Campus Book Rentals check out this link.
