What is Chegg?

Chegg is a company based in Santa Clara, California, that specializes in online textbook rentals (both in physical and digital formats), homework help, online tutoring, scholarships and internship matching. It is meant to help students in high school and college. (Wikipedia)

Was it useful?

Yes, but only for the answers , not for the teaching. There were no lessons included in the Chegg usage. I personally didn’t like using the only tutoring chat system. The answers honestly were not totally straight forward, and sometimes there wasn’t an explanation at all. Chegg was great for giving me answers to those ‘too tough to answer’ or ‘waited to long to actually do the work’ assignments.

Was it worth $14.99 a month?

In the long run, Yes. I wish it was cheaper, but that’s generally my outlook on a lot of things. For a college student, it’s pretty feasible. Better yet, share with a classmate and pay half each to really make it worth your wild.

Did it make my grade improve?

No. Honestly, it saved time but not effort. I am not great at math…at all. I typically received the same grades with or without Chegg. This may be different for other people, but in my personal experience, it didn’t make me score better.

Final Opinion:

Chegg is a great tool for getting the answer, but not learning the material. It’s worth the money if you want a way to get the correct answer quickly, and even more worth the money if you find someone to split the cost with.
