Reader Forrest is the winner of my review copy of “Debt-Free U: How I Paid for an Outstanding College Education Without Loans, Scholarships, or Mooching off My Parents.” Forrest is in high school and is stressing out about the college selection process. Forrest wrote:
I’ll be a high school senior this year. What stresses me most about the whole college selection process is the financial aid. I don’t know how I’ll be able to decide between a school I like and a school with a better aid package. This book would definitely help.
Forrest, I can totally relate to you. I too felt stressed about choosing the right college. I like that at such a young age you have taken the initiative to find information that will help you make an educated decision regarding your finances. It is my hope that this book demystifies the college process for you and that you end up paying less for a quality education.
If you missed my review of the book, author Zac Bissonnette, a college senior at the University of Massachusetts and a personal finance expert, writes about saving money while in college with practical tips like saving money on textbooks and avoiding credit card debt. Bissonnette also shares tips on how to get the most money for college. He suggests finding a like-minded individual that also needs money for college, getting a prenup and tying the knot. He says the newlyweds will no longer need to include their parents earnings when they submit a Free Application for Federal Aid (FAFSA) and will receive more money for college.
If you didn’t win my review copy and would like to get the book for your future college student or yourself, you can pre-order it from Amazon for $10.88. The book will be released August 31, 2010. Buying a copy supports BargainBabe.com.
