I do not recommend RENTING this book because its a work book that requires to write in and straple fabric swatches to the book. I spoke with a supervisor and ask what my restictions were and of course i was not able to wire or make markings on the book so she advised me to buy the book. I would just recommend to BUY the book and save yourself trouble/time because it is very useful and helpful.
Absolutely do NOT rent this book!! As the previous person said, this is a workbook. You attach the swatches to the paper and fill out the sheets, making it useless if it has already been used. I made the mistake of renting this and I was sent a book that was COMPLETELY filled out, with half of the swatches missing because they had fallen off the tape used to attach them to the paper. I sent it back right away with a note saying I did not want to be charged for this because it was not my doing. It's pretty upsetting that the return policy claims they check the book to make sure the next student can use it...but clearly they didn't even bother to open this one or they would have seen no one else could have used it. I know renting is cheaper, but it isn't worth testing it to see if you might end up with an unusable book. Definitely buy this one instead.
