Product Description: "At last--a practical guide for getting a real return on your training investment!" "How much money has your organization lost in the past year because people weren't properly trained? How often have you been frustrated when employees returned from glitzy and expensive courses and kept doing their jobs the same old way? How many hours have you and they wasted getting trained in some fashionable new idea that never really got off the ground in your company?" "If you're like most managers, your answer is "All too many!" But it doesn't have to be this way. Motorola's ROI from training runs as high as 3300 percent. So can yours." "How? The answer is Smart Training--a "consumers guide" to training for managers. In very practical terms, it shows you how to get the greatest return on your training investment. And it works whether you have a large in-house training department, have to contract for training, or have to use canned commercial training." "The author is a manager, who's also one of the most innovative thinkers in the training field. He guides you through the bewildering variety of training options and shows you how to get the biggest bang for your training buck. He shows you how to use effective training to maintain your firm's core competence; motivate workers and managers through mastery; and create a true learning organization. He also addresses your nuts-and-bolts concerns, with very practical recommendations and a chart that explains the advantages and disadvantages of every major training method." "Whether your organization is large or small, Smart Training will show you how to ensure that training produces real improvement in job performance; keep training costs down at the same time you improve training effectiveness; realistically evaluate high-tech training methods such as multimedia and electronic performance support systems, and use them productively; use low-tech, inexpensive methods--such as job aids and structured on-the-job training-to produce inexpensive but powerful results." "Smart Training contains page after page of specific recommendations you can use immediately to make your training program smarter. These recommendations will show you how to get exactly the training your organization needs at the lowest cost." "In short, if you're looking for a real return on your training investment--this is the book that will show you how to get it."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.
6. How much money can renting my books save?
It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?
Yes! We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore.
8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.

Make A Difference

At Campus Book Rentals our company is guided by a single question, "How are we making education more affordable?" We know that getting a college education is quickly becoming a rite of passage for students and is becoming more important every year. In order to make education more attainable for the 99%, we started renting textbooks so students could avoid high purchase prices and buyback programs. We know it's a better way, and we're going to show everyone how to make a college education affordable again.
