There's really not much to say about this book.  The book is just a list of short tips to help college students pay for their education and living expenses while in college.  I thought several facts were repeated several times in slightly different ways, but overall it had a lot of helpful tips.  It was seperated into chapters based on different topics.  For example, there was a couple of chapters on credit cards and some on saving money while shopping.  Some of it is probably things you already know, but if you're in or going into college this book may provide some helpful tips for you.  I got a few ideas from it.  A lot of it has to do with debt since almost no one graduates from college without some debt.
