A new resource for FAFSA help
I haven’t read Mark Kantrowitz’s new book Filing the FAFSA yet. But he created finaid.org, the most comprehensive source of free advice on the Internet about how to pay for college. He’s given countless interviews, written numerous articles, and otherwise found ways to share his expert advice with anyone who's interested. And I’ve written before that one of the best ways I’ve found to get my financial aid and scholarship questions answered is to google the subject plus “Mark Kantrowitz.” If the book is anywhere near as helpful as his hundreds of other free or mostly-free resources, I can’t imagine it won’t be worth the $22.46.
And if you’re looking for not only FAFSA help, but also an in-depth explanation of how the financial aid process really works, check out Kal Channy’s Paying for College without Going Broke.
