My freshman year at Purdue I was completely lost. I had one week to conquer my schedule, major, myPurdue, Blackboard, sports tickets, and Greek Life- not to mention buy my textbooks! My friends and I made our rounds at the campus books stores. Over $450 later I thought I was set for my first semester classes. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case. I dropped some classes, add some classes, bought some books I didn’t need, and forgot some books I did need. This entire process was frustrating, to say the least.
My sophomore year I had heard of several sites where you could buy your books online, but had not tried any yet. I worried about too much like when and where they would arrive.
By junior year I had it figured out. I could wait a few extra days for the books. I knew I was getting the best price. I even knew I could and would sell them back for a reasonable price at the end of the semester. I wasn’t able to get all of my books online, but I was able to get most of them and it cut my book expenses for each semester by more than half!
If I were still in school now- I’d say this would be the best new option! Now you can use CampusBookRentals online to RENT your books at over 90% Off the original price and return them at the end of the semester. Don’t let those old text books sit around and collect dust.
