Engineering students will inevitably study Civil, and in doing so need to obtain Civil textbooks. But students of Civil often spend far too much money every semester purchasing Civil textbooks. Civil 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 Aqueous Environmental Geochemistry, Prentice Hall's Environmental Technology Series, Vol I: Introduction to Environmental Technology, or Environmental Engineering: A Design Approach 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 Applied Strength of Materials, the best way would be to find the ISBN number (in this case, ISBN9780023674129) from your Civil class guide and search for it on Whether you’re studying Environmental, Foundations & Soil Mechanics, or any other subject within Civil, renting textbooks is the way to go.
