Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Going away to school, everyone gets the same lecture: Only use your credit card in an emergency.  Well, a 1:00 A.M. pizza is an emergency, right?  And a new snowboard?  After a semester or two of "emergencies," not to mention the phone bill, the meal plan, text-books, car repairs, rent, and spring-break airline tickets, you may find yourself in a serious mess.

So whether you're just heading off to school, or counting down the days to graduation, Dollars & Sense for College Students will help you develop the smart habits and make the savvy decisions that will keep you out of financial trouble.  The advice inside includes:

*Choosing a credit card, and the truth about "teaser" rates

*Managing your bank accounts

*Becoming a smart shopper: "Do I have to have it today?"

*Owning a car at school: what to watch for

*Setting a budget

*Finding great deals: travel, computers, phone service, and more!
