    1. Another excellent book by Alex Chediak! Thriving at College told us how to succeed in college; Beating the College Debt Trap tells us how to do it without breaking the bank. From FAFSAs to student loans to part-time jobs, college finances can be tricky. Beating the College Debt Trap contains clear and practical advice for navigating the complicated world of paying for college. This book is a must read for any young adult who wants financial freedom. Two thumbs up!

    2. I work as a college pastor and this book was extremely helpful for understanding this pressing issue for college students. Written by a professor, this book was very helpful for me to understand how we can help students earlier – as freshmen or sophomores – and help them stay out of debt.

    3. Ready-for-college-themed author Alex Chediak has done it again! In this easy-to-read guide, Alex breaks down the complex world of college financing for math and money simpletons like me and gives sound, practical, biblical counsel. The most significant thing he does is write directly to the prospective college student--not their moms and dads (though parents will profit from reading it, too). Highly recommended. Start reading it yesterday!

    4. What I would have given to have this book in high school! As someone that has switched majors halfway through college and is now going in the complete opposite direction career wise, I found myself skipping through all of the chapters that no longer apply to me. I would recommend this book to a junior in high school, not so much for people that are going down a very specified career path.

    5. Good stuff. Not much new. I didn't know that a student's savings are expected to be spent in higher proportions than parents' savings.

    6. This book won't tell you what to do regarding college debt, but it lays out the options, the process. I'll return to it in a few a few years when we need it. For now I feel more hopeful.
