Makes paying for college seem less like a chore! Aug 26, 2008
This book is easy to digest because the information is presented in short, easy to read and easy to follow nuggets. The tips are very useful and give a lot of great ideas on how to pay for college including scholarships, financial aid, tax savings, saving for college and saving money while you're in college. The authors present some creative ways on how to pay for college that I never would have thought of on my own. A lot of other books are very dense, difficult to read and, quite frankly, boring. This book takes the bore out of paying for college!
