Operating Systems students will inevitably study Linux, and in doing so need to obtain Linux textbooks. But students of Linux often spend far too much money every semester purchasing Linux textbooks. Linux books can be very expensive when you buy new textbooks, while a rented textbook can be half the price or less. For example, a rental copy of either LINUX Applications and Administration, Teach Yourself Linux (Teach Yourself Series), or How to Do Everything: Ubuntu can be 75% less than what you might pay in a college bookstore.

Textbook rentals are easy (and even cheaper than buying used textbooks! And there are a number of ways to find the rentals themselves. If you wanted to rent Linux: The Complete Reference, the best way would be to find the ISBN number (in this case, ISBN9780070680104) from your Linux class guide and search for it on Whether you’re studying Applications, Red Hat, or any other subject within Linux, renting textbooks is the way to go.
