REVIEWS for The Norton Anthology of American Literature 8th Edition

2 / 5 stars overall
this is an older version of the books needed. the new printe4d version is only one book
Monday, February 2, 2015
Classification: Sophomore
I had trouble keeping up with the readings because my book was older with 2 volumes, whereas the new printed version is one book. I have trouble keeping up in class with the pages that the teacher is reviewing. Also there is some writing in the book.
No, I do not recommend this product.

The books were in amazing condition upon arrival ! So far I haven't noticed any smears, highlighted or underlined portions, or creased pages. The only thing I noticed is a prior renter has written in the book, but it was in pencil and erased fine. I rented from here last semester and the book had a strong scent that stayed throughout the entire semester, but this rental has no scent whatsoever. I'm very relieved to know the copy I rented last semester was an isolated incident. Keep up the good work Campusbookrentals, you've got yourselves a returning customer!

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.
