Engineering students will inevitably study Materials, and in doing so need to obtain Materials textbooks. But students of Materials often spend far too much money every semester purchasing Materials textbooks. Materials 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 Materials in Today's World, Second Edition, Failure Analysis of Engineering Materials, or Failure Analysis of Industrial Composite Materials 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 Precious Metals, 1982: Proceedings of the 6th International Precious Metals Institute Conference, Newport Beach, California 1982, the best way would be to find the ISBN number (in this case, ISBN9780070507111) from your Materials class guide and search for it on Whether you’re studying Metallurgy, Testing, or any other subject within Materials, renting textbooks is the way to go.
