BOOK BANK RATES COMPARISON AUGUST 2011 - CHENNAI, INDIA

Below is the latest Book Bank rates comparison in Chennai. Book Bank concept was started to cut down the books price for all Engineering students so that students can borrow multiple authors and varieties of engineering books for their entire semester. These book banks have various plans to fit the students so that the students are satisfied and score good in exams with quality books. I have listed out REC book bank, STUDENTS Book bank, REACH Book bank and Okot.  I will be updating MV book bank very soon.

REVIEWS

10 years old Book Bank.

Only one location in Chennai. Good in books service.

Two branches in Chennai, 4 years old book bank so mostly all latest edition books. Good in price and best in quality books.

 

One branch in Chennai, 5+ years old book bank. Good in books service.

I heard from friends that this is not recommended due to less availability of books. They buy the books when students join, not in stock. High price schemes.
