Most students seem to meet have a money problem. There's never enough of it. Then there's the money that has to be paid back later. It all adds up. So when it comes to the text books you need to buy for your course it can easily turn into a big problem. You pay a lot of money for them, use them a little bit and then try to sell them back. It would be so much better if you could rent the chapters you want. BookStep is a textbook tool based in the cloud that let's you access the material you need for little or no money.

Conclusion
You know it makes sense, don't you? It does seem rather ludicrous that our poor students have to scrimp and save all year long and then spend a fortune on expensive textbooks which they may only need for a short amount of time. It makes far more sense to pick and choose textbooks when you need them and only pay a fraction of the amount. BookStep's claim is that most of their readers end up paying about 30% of the actual textbook price so it's a significant saving. This free to join textbook tool can be linked to your social networking site so you can log in via Facebook or Twitter if that's convenient.
