"This book provides a great overview for financial literacy for a new college student. It does a good job of suggesting the relevance that this information has for a new student by disclosing that finances is the top reason that students don't finish college…The most unique aspect of the book is that all this basic financial information is available in one book!"— Eleanor Sweetwood, IADT Seattle
