I don't know what is better should I buy books for college or rent them?

Well it depends on each case of book! =) For each class you have, you should look up the required textbook (s). Then, compare prices in the bookstore with online prices, etc. Choose the cheapest price at which you can still get a book in good physical condition.
So sometimes the cheapest option will be to rent a copy; in other cases, it will be cheaper to buy a used copy. Of course, some books may be needed for more than one semester/quarter, so you might want to buy them in those cases.
It's basically just a case-by-case basis. Hope that helps!1
