These days, most people assume you need to pay a boatload of money for a quality college education.

But Zac Bissonnette is walking proof that the assumption is not only false, but dangerous. From his unique double perspective—he’s a personal finance expert (at AOL Money and Finance) AND a current senior at the University of Massachusetts—Zac figured out how too get an outstanding education at a public college, without bankrupting his parents or taking on loans.
Armed with his personal knowledge, the latest data, and smart analysis, Zac takes on the sacred cows and conventional wisdom about choosing and financing college. You’ll discover, for instance, that:
Zac can prove every one of hose bold assertions—and more. He has a simple message for parents: “RELAX! Your kid will be able to get a champagne education on a beer budget!”

“In the new economy, your college choice is critical. Zac Bissonnette’s Debt-Free U is the one book you need to make this life-changing decision—thoroughly researched, smart, and funny. Grade: A+. (Ali Rogers, CBS MoneyWatch, and author of Diary of a Real Estate Rookie)
If you're in college or considering going to college then this book is a must read. It's full of college cheat codes that everyone can use to save more money and avoid debt. Not too much fluff either definitely a book I will recommend to all future college students.
I am convinced after reading this book that overpaying for a college education to attend the school of your dreams is not worth it. I like the research presented and the sometimes comical way arguments are presented. The narrator is easy to understand and not overly formal. Great information and entertaining!
Too much info about things that are obvious. It's like asking a geek directions to the bathroom and walking away 20 mins later, with all kinds of facts about the construction of the sidewalk you will be using, the landscape, and all the different statistics on the people that have gone that way before you... with directions mixed in. It was sooo boring.
Be less boring with facts and just get to the value of content already.
It's quality information.
This question does not apply to this book.
No, but he narrates this book well.
Information about school, investing in school.
A must read for college bound students and parents.
How Smart Students Pay for School
Although the information was useful, the author came across as a my-way-or-the-highway kind of personality. I took offence to his comments regarding school counselors. We can be a pretty smart bunch and a valuable resource for his listeners.
Will share the book title as a reference during financial aid night.
