Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The projected cost of attending a public college for one year now equals the cost of buying a new car. If you want to attend a private college, double that amount. And don't forget to multiply your total by four for the grand total. Can anyone afford to send a student to college without going into grand debt? Yes, says Gordon Wadsworth, a financial advisor on finding a college education. He points out strategies and resources to help students (and their parents) pay for the high cost of college whether the students enter this year of fifteen years from now. With fourteen appendices containing financial charts, finding resources, savings strategies, and even a sample budget for students to use during their college years, here's a tool that studends and parents will find as helpful as any college catalog.

The projected cost of attending a public college for one year now equals the cost of buying a new car. In Cost Effective College, Gordon Wadsworth teaches all the ins and outs of college financing.
