Is it worth it to rent a textbook?
Of the many costs associated with higher education, I find textbooks to be among the most painful, because they are only really useful for one semester. While my school makes an effort to limit the costs of textbooks (encouraging professors to pick older editions, write their own, etc.), it isn't as feasible for my major. Even though I generally buy used books, it still comes out to 80-150$ per course each semester, and being a full-time student with loans, it's really hurting my wallet. I generally resell my books to other students, but I find that I really only make about 50% of my money back. Anyways, would it be worth it to just rent a textbook at about 50% of the cost and not have to deal with finding someone to sell my book to? Would I get better results selling online? If so, any suggestions on what sites I could use?
