After my research about the two major student learning platforms of today, I can conclude that Course Hero is the better option over Chegg.

Aside from its user-generated information, Course Hero offers practice problems that stimulate learning further, which isn’t found in the textbooks offered by Chegg. These are just two major advantages of Course Hero over Chegg, which makes it the better option.
