Why Do CSU Students Use Rent Digital?
Affordability
Lowest price. No buyback gamble. No risk of losing a print rental.
Can afford ALL materials for classes.
Reduce Stress
No book theft. No heavy backpack. No remembering to return rentals during finals.
Reassurance
Available in NEW editions unlike used books and hard copy rentals. CSU only has
the correct edition/title/ISBN so no risk of buying the wrong book
Unique Benefits
If students decide to keep the materials, they can pay the difference. Interactive
content is more engaging than hard copy and grades reflect the improvement
Tests identify and explain errors so students learn from tests as well as studying
Publisher updates in real-time, so no “old” editions.
Get to select the format that suits them while the instructor still selects content
Digital Rentals: Student Savings
If 1/3 of CSU students choose
1 digital rental per semester
instead of a new $100 print
textbook…..
 CSU students will save about
$17 Million in 2012-13
