Looking for reviews on anyone who has rented text books from amazon
? I can't afford to buy this semester, even the used ones are super pricey and this looks like the most affordable option. I'd love to hear from anyone who has used the service

I've used amazon rentals and it's AWESOME!
The books arrive quickly - save your packaging, and all you have to do when you want to return them is box them up in that same packaging (yay recycling!) and affix your own shipping label (you can have one mailed to you, or print it, it's no biggie!). Drop it off at your local UPS store~ and voila!
I saved $100 last semester on one book - my CC wanted to charge me $130 to rent the book; Amazon charged me $30 and i had that book for almost 6 months haha.
It was incredibly convenient, going to use them again this coming semester!

Great service! I highly recommend it. They have everything, prices are good an the books were in good condition. It's so much cheaper than buying and you aren't left with a stack of books that become worthless in a year or two. Figure out which books you feel you would need to reference later on in your career, buy those then rent everything else.
Couldn't agree with this more - my fiance has stacks of books on radiology that he can't bear to part with because he spent so much money on them, and some of them he referenced maybe once or twice throughout his program.
