Do you know what’s expensive about going to college? Yeah tuition , but also textbooks. Oh my! I used to *drea* getting my list of book needs and it meant to my budget. As a frugal student I almost always bought my books used. But back then, and geez! I have not been out of school *that* long, there was no text book rentals. Well, it seems that since I graduated text book rental has become more mainstream.
Cengage Learning, the country’s second largest textbook publisher, recently launched CengageBrain.com, a website with more than 1,200 Cengage Learning titles for rent – at up to 70 percent less than the suggested retail price. CengageBrain.com also offers e-textbooks, individual e-chapters, and audio books, as well as homework and study tools.
The rental process through CengageBrain.com is simple and convenient for students. When renting a textbook, students get immediate access to the first chapter of the book in e-book format and a choice of shipping options. Once the rental term is complete, students can either choose to print a return label from CengageBrain.com and ship the textbook back, or purchase the title. Shipping is FREE with orders of $25 or above.
But Cengage Brain is not just for college students. You can find learning materials from early childhood learning and beyond. I was looking at what was available for my children and I saw books with learning activities for 12 month olds. School aged parents should check out the resources available for after school support for their kids.
