Complete a Year of College for Less Than $500 Reviews
Well, well, well! I am most pleasantly surprised by this book. Normally I tend to shy away from titles such as these for fear of them being inaccurate, misleading, or just plain inconceivable. However, I found this to be a rather informative look into several issues regarding costs of our current college education options and potential solutions! I rather marveled at the thoroughness of the research done to give you the best possibility of succeeding with the title's goal in mind! I am so intrigued in fact that I have taken it upon myself to investigate further and see if what Dan Harris claims is possible. I loved the fact that he presents so many available resources to assist the struggling college student. I also greatly appreciate the concise format of the book and that it clearly emphasizes that this isn't just going to be a walk in the park. It requires your own research and hard work to make this happen! I received this as an ARC and have voluntarily left this review!
I was blessed with a free copy of this book, and I have chosen of my own volition to share my review with you. As a current doctorate-leveled student, I found that this book had some solid money saving ideas for those entering the college-sphere at the Associate or Bachelor levels. The precise step-by-step outline of how to choose a college, major, and courses could be very helpful to the new student. I did not like that the majority of the book was dedicated to outlining specific course offerings and a listing of colleges. I understand why this material was included, but found that it could have been abbreviated to shorten the overall piece. I recommend this book for those considering the pursuit of an undergraduate education, particularly high school students (and their parents) in preparation for college.
This book is a very handy book that explains how to earn college credit for relatively low cost of $500 a year. His premise is that you can earn college credit by enrolling in free classes online or through your work experience or travel among other things. The author does a very good job of explaining and listing the institutions ("meet your team”) and resources that make this goal possible. He references Saylor academy, that offers nearly 100 courses that have been evaluates and approved by ACE. ACE is the American Council on Education. However, he cautions that in order for you to make it happen, you will have to put in a lot time and effort to reach this goal, but he provides you with a 10 step Roadmap process. I think that this road map is very helpful guide, the steps are: determine why you want to complete a college degree, choose a degree major that fits within your goals, confirm that the college accepts ACE recommendations for college credit, choose Saylor academy courses that fit your degree plan, confirm that your college will accept credit from Saylor academy towards your degree. Get accepted into college, complete your courses, transfer your course and finish your degree. He also explains the differences between a 2 year vs a 4 year college degree very well and helps you figure out how to choose between the two. He also explains what a college credit is and degree requirements and transfer credits and residency requirements , accreditation.The info in this book is very helpful as many students embark on alternative ways to earn a degree, such as going to community college, spending money, time and effort and opportunity costs only to find out that their college of choice does not accept the courses they have taken.What I like about the book, is that he clearly explains why you need a college degree, and the advantages of earning one, which are more access to opportunities and jobs that provide higher pay and better benefits over time. He clearly brings home that a college degree is a signal to an employer that you can learn and therefore it is not always about what you study in college, but what you do it with it. Therefore any degree can land you a better job that you currently have.The book is very well written and very easy to understand for everybody. I recommend this book for all teenagers and parents and those who are thinking to go back and earn that college degree.
