Chegg is a well known website that has been set up as very complete system for renting and buying text books, both in their paper form and as online ebooks and further as a sort of almost Social Website for keeping track of the course material you are following.
Their basic idea is to rent students their paper text books for less than the actual cost of such text books, so students can make considerable savings in their annual text book budget. In itself this would be a useful and desirable service for most students, but they have gone a step further and have set up a sort of cloud based e-text book service as well, so students can also work in a highly interactive way online with their e-text books, which thus offers a very wide range of useful extra functions when compared to paper text books.
This ebook reading system they have set up will work on any computer platform you might happen to have, be it a PC, an Apple or even an Android based device… so no excuse not to use this system I feel.
Most of these extra goodies are briefly – but adequately – described in the video below so I shan’t go into a lot of detail here, but simply let you get that info from the video.
Here is that video:
So, now you have a broad idea of what they can offer you.
With their paper text books, they offer several possibilities, you can buy them, you can rent them, and you can sell them back to Chegg when you no longer need them, so basically you can keep all your paper text book affairs in the one place if you wish, which can have advantages obviously, if nothing else, it is simple and saves time.
