This is one of the best places to get cheap books. It is so much cheaper and easier to use rather than using the bookstore on campus where prices are really high.

Extremley Helpful

If you find yourself stuck, this is a place to help you pick up the pieces. Although the questions may not be yours word for word, the answers provided will help guide you on the right path to understanding whatever content you are learning.

Go-to for cheaper, digital options seems to always match the best price for digital offers, and is the central hub for any kind of online textbooks. Their physical copy options are also very reliable.

Helpful and Proactive

I use Chegg for textbooks and study tools primarily. Initially, I was unsure of using an online textbook for y advanced biology class, but I like the color-coded highlight features and the bookmarking features. I found the organization of the site and its resources helpful too, it helped me find good deals on paperback and virtual textbooks. Most of it is free, but the extras might be worth the cost for some students. I would definitely recommend it.

Definitely Recommend

I ordered a book from this website last semester and it came in perfect condition.

Very Helpful

Chegg's solutions got me through some of the hardest parts of my differential equations and electricity and magnetism classes. Sometimes the solutions can be very complicated, but Chegg does an excellent job of providing solutions and explanations that allow me to learn from the problem without just giving me the answer.

Amazing For Book Rentals and Coursework Help

It is so helpful to have this when you are lost or overwhelmed. So many answers to questions and excellent explanations. Rentals are pretty affordable too.

Wonderful Resource

Chegg is a great student tool. As a student, you might not have a tone of money floating around to buy $200 textbooks. Instead, this site provides rentals (often between $15 and $40 for a 4-5 month rental period). I have used this service half a dozen times and the physical book delivery is RAPID. I ordered the weekend before my classes started and had my books by Monday or Tuesday. It even comes with a return envelope and shipping, as far as I remember. Fantastic!

Amazing..saves money!

I've used Chegg for many books for better discounts. Highly recommend.

So helpful

Renting books is so much better than having to pay $200 for one book. Definitely recommend.
