7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Margaret Way on February 4, 2010
Format: Paperback
This book is packed with useful information, web sites, and explanations of the various types of student loans, their advantages and drawbacks. Whether they graduate or not, most students are left with debt that can run to thousands of dollars. The information on student loans provided is up-to-date and takes into account the current recession and its effect on both borrowers and lenders. Perhaps the early chapters are a little dense for a bewildered and frustrated student or recent graduate - the history and definition of all the various types of government-backed loans is an alphabet soup that only a bureaucratic society can produce. But there is a useful glossary and an index that allow the reader to find the precise information he or she needs.
While the early chapters may be more useful to a financial aid office, from Chapter 6 on the author concentrates on the advice that a student or graduate needs. Which loan is best for you, and how are you going to pay it back? Comparisons of loan terms, methods of repayment, budgeting, making decisions about your career and the impact that will have on your ability to repay debt - all aspects of the financial management of debt are covered in a sensible way that goes straight to the point, right down to the costs and time involved in preparing meals at home versus eating out, and the potential health consequences of each.
Inevitably, there is a good deal of repetition in the book. But the subject matter is so complex that repetition is helpful rather than not, and the content is enlivened by tips for the "savvy student" and anecdotes and quotes from people who have experienced the trials of student loan repayment.

When I see "wiping out your student loans" I assume this is really getting rid of them. All this book does is explain different ways to pay them back. Anyone could figure that out! This book is a waste of money. I won't not recommend it at all.

Very little inside information and dated information. Very vague and little information about wiping out your loans basically say just make payments.

Not worth the money. It is best to get a second source of income to pay down loans or payback with income based programs. The government has not developed a fair payback method designed for when government political administrations hurt the economy and we enter a recession.

Format: Paperback
I find it interesting that the description talks about all of the options that are "supposedly" available to a student borrower, but doesn't talk about how the loan companies take advantage of students and manipulate things so that some of these options are never available to a borrower. The book I want to read is how to combat the predatory lending practices, how lenders manipulation the system under the current laws that are in place, and what we can do about it. I think we all should pay back the money we owe on our loans (for sure!), but I don't think the lenders should be able to screw borrowers like they do. They are happy to give you those deferments and forbearances when times are tough because a lot more interest accrues. Then when you come under hardship they'll deny certain things that will help you and they'll add tens of thousands of dollars in FEES on top of your loan and interest that has accrued. It's an extremely manipulative practice that is allowed by currently law. My apologies to the author but they said they've done "exhaustive research" on this topic, but I don't think they understand the true problem. As a matter of fact I'm betting the author is related, somehow, to a loan company.

Format: Paperback
How to Wipe Out Your Student Loans and Be Debt Free Fast: Everything You Need to Know Explained Simply by Martha Maeda is a comprehensive must-have for all students who financed their education through loans. The book is not only useful to professionals who have already acquired the loans, but is arguably more valuable to students considering on applying for student loans. The first section, Chapters 1 though 6, offers general information on the cost of education, options for financial aid, types of loans, associated terms and more. I liked Section 1 so much that I think school districts should purchase copies to provide to their high school juniors and seniors. Maeda does an excellent job of providing these essential concepts in easy-to-grasp prose organized in a logical flow.

Maeda dedicates Section 2 to information all about strategies to help students pay back their loans. Chapter 9, "Setting Goals and Priorities" offers practical tips advice to motivate readers to take control of their finances, careers and future path. Maeda is able to accomplish this in a non-preachy way. Her inclusion of "Savvy Student Tips" sprinkled within the copy will no doubt be appreciated by readers of all ages. This book is an incredible resource.

Format: Paperback
In the book How to Wipe Out Your Student Loans and Be Debt Free Fast, Martha Maeda talks about how students can be able to use students' loans to receive an education, then how to pay off the student loans as well as manage debt and establish good spending habits for the rest of your life. In the first 12 chapters, the book, talks in detail about how students loans work, what options students have as far as grants / scholarships are concerned and the overall choices as far as payment plans. The book then shifts gears, and talks about different strategies that the recent college graduates can use to find that first job, along with how to effectively manage / control debt. All of the different ideas presented in the book are useful for the person who is just entering college to working in their first job. This is because of overall depth and ideas that Maeda instills upon the reader.
