A Money-Management Guide for Students

I think that Financial Basics should be a standard part of a college’s new student orientation program

Financial Basics: A Money-Management Guide for Students by Susan Knox is an engaging and insightful primer aimed to help young people learn to manage their finances.  This book will give practical advice to help the reader avoid many of the common problems encountered by young people who, for the first time in their lives, are responsible for managing their income and expenses.  Financial education is sorely missing in our culture. Many parents have poor money management skills.  I think that Financial Basics should be a standard part of a college’s new student orientation program.   Financial difficulties is a significant cause of students dropping out of college. Susan Knox’s book will help colleges retain students by providing the basic tools needed to effectively manage one’s finances.”
