Happy Graduation! Now About That Student Loan...

By October 27, 2012

Follow me on:

CliffsNotes Graduation Dept (Wiley, 2010) If your darling new college graduate tossed his mortarboard last spring, your family is about to get some most unwelcome mail. It's time to start paying off those student loans - and it's time for your 20something to start trying to figure out what he owes and to whom, a question that's considerably more complicated than you might think. After four years, he may have as many as eight different lenders. It's a topic that sends me into full-body shudders.

But now CliffsNotes, the same folks who brought us those abbreviated versions of "Crime and Punishment" and other sure-to-be-on-the-exam classics, has done the same thing with student loans, offering up a primer on "Graduation Debt: How to Manage Student Loans and Live Your Life" that is, frankly, fantastic. Definitely worth checking out. (You'll find a full review at that link, btw)
