Question   
Are rented textbooks new or used?   
Answer   
The Rent-A-Text program allows highlighting, taking notes and the normal ’wear and tear’ associated with coursework. Availability of new and used books will vary depending on title, but we do rent both new and used copies. Rental fees will be the same regardless of new/used condition. Some students actually prefer the highlighted textbooks, while others prefer the clean, new version. Unlike other rental offerings from other online retailers, students will have the opportunity to choose a book, physically from the shelf, before renting.

Rent-A-Text will be at more than 800 campuses for the 2011 academic year and that count continues to grow. An up-to-date list of participating locations is available at Rent-A-Text www.rent-a-text.com.
