This is an essential book for any student who must measure the desire for an education beyond high school against his ability to pay for it. First it discusses and lists all the possibilities in terms of outside help -- scholarships, loans, grants-in-aid -- and how to apply for it. Sensible self-help advice on carrying a job while in college is an especially good feature of this book. There is straightforward information to parents about costs and the possibilities of longterm loans. The book can act as a guidance counselor where there is none.
