Chegg app review: helping students get smart, save money, and save time

Reviews

Introduction

The education industry is making it increasingly harder for the youth to afford going to school or college due to the ever-escalating costs of the courses and textbooks. Available on the iPhone and iPad, Chegg is a very useful app for those who wish to find ways to achieve their educational goals despite budgetary constraints.

With Chegg you can receive instantaneous access to millions of textbooks and their solutions, allowing you to get eTextbooks directly on your iPhone or iPad! This allows students to study no matter where they are.

Not only can you get easy access to these tools through Chegg, but you also get the physical books at a heavily subsidized rate: up to 80 percent discount on new textbooks, and 90 percent on used ones!

ETextbooks

Chegg - Textbooks, eTextbooks & Study Tools allows you to search for a textbook by title, author, or ISBN code. Physical books can be rented at a fraction of the cost that your local bookstore will charge, and come with a 21-day satisfaction guarantee. If you are in any way unsatisfied with the copy you receive, or decide that you don't really need the textbook, you will receive a full refund minus the cost of shipping.

The satisfaction guarantee also applies to eTextbooks and lasts 14 days. If you have ordered a physical book but don't want to wait several days for it to be shipped, begin studying instantly by getting an instant seven-day free access to an eTextbook while you wait.

The free version of Chegg - Textbooks, eTextbooks & Study Tools features two guided solutions each week, along with free previews of more than 2,500 eTextbooks.

Chegg Study

I think the treasure lies in the full version, which is enabled through a monthly subscription of $14.99 and renews automatically. They are charged through your iTunes account, on the same credit card associated with your account. Subscriptions may be canceled up to 24 hours prior to the end of the month.

This full version, known as Chegg Study, consists of a comprehensive library of more than 2.5 million guided solutions, searchable in the archives.
