We aren't just committed to college football; we're early enrolling in it.
Where the madness isn't just in March.
You have no favorite boards.
I recently returned to college and am interested in the use of the Nook or Kindle Fire to rent Text books on. Does anyone use this platform for getting your class books and if so how do you like it compared to getting the paperback?? Which is easier to manage and use? Just wanted to hear about it before I go out a buy one. TIA
Never heard of doing it that way, I just use Chegg because it's cheaper than everything else.
Go Blue & Gig Em'!
Chegg is a good way to go.
You should check into any type of rental books your bookstore gives out. I've gotten every book I possibly could as a rental at PSU and I save literally hundreds every semester.
I'm sure there is a cheaper way to get textbooks, unless you just prefer working with a tablet.
Why should we have to go to class if we came here to play FOOTBALL, we ain't come to play SCHOOL, classes are POINTLESS
Just buy and sell on the used market. If you pick the right times to buy and sell your books, you'll make a profit. I haven't paid for books since sophomore year minus a lab manual or two.
Try to get a syllabus from your teachers early if you can. I bought around 12 books for the Kindle one semester and it failed miserably. One of my professors wanted her particular paperback books for essays and you had to cite from those books. Books on the Kindle often don't have page numbers to cite from (Kindle uses location numbers since page numbers can change with text size), and when they do they are off by at least a page most of the time.
I find it tough to read a book without having actual pages to turn. Don't know if you have that same problem or if you prefer e-readers.
I would buy from Amazon Prime, eBay/Half.com or PostYourBook.com and look for the cheapest ones. Or Chegg like others have suggested.
