5.0 out of 5 stars Financial Literacy 101, August 2, 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Eight Steps to Help Black Families Pay for College: A Crash Course in Financial Aid (College Admissions Guides) (Paperback)
This book is an engaging reference tool. It is more than information on how to pay for college. It is a beginning step to understanding financial literacy and preparing for your financial future.
Chapter One sets the framework for the book and begins expanding the readers world view on money in general. Understanding the basic difference between income and wealth is the first step towards financial literacy.
The insight that is given in terms of how you negotiate and relate for preparing for college and working with financial aid officer can easily be transferred to relating to the bank or any other financial institution.
There is more to this book than is obvious to naked eye.
Dr. LaVeist is using college entrance preparation as an opportunity to introduce his reader to wider concepts on money and basic finances.

By A Customer
This review is from: Eight Steps to Help Black Families Pay for College: A Crash Course in Financial Aid (College Admissions Guides) (Paperback)
This is just the type of book on financial aid that I was looking for. It makes the whole confusing process easy to understand. It's a quick read, intelligent and entertaining. It speaks to black folks. After reading it, I have a better understanding of how the whole thing works.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very entertaining, March 2, 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Eight Steps to Help Black Families Pay for College: A Crash Course in Financial Aid (College Admissions Guides) (Paperback)
I enjoyed this book. The authors are two brothers who weaved a story about getting their sons ready for college into a book about college financial aid, which is usually a very boring topic. Very creative! They managed to entertain AND educate.
