As the costs of higher education continues to rise in the US, especially where textbooks are concerned, a new ebook from the team at US News & World Report is aimed specifically at parents and college students who are already wondering how they’re going to pay for education.
“For nearly three decades U.S. News has provided expert advice and resources for families navigating the college process,” said Brian Kelly, editor and chief content officer of U.S. News, in a press release. “Paying for college is one of the most challenging and confusing parts of the process, so we’ve assembled our best advice to help students and parents plan for such an important financial investment.”
While also available in print (which ironically demonstrates the need for digital textbooks, since the print edition of the guide to affording college costs more than triple the price of the ebook), the U.S. News Guide to Paying for College was created and distributed by ebook platform Vook and is formatted for a wide variety of device and PC consumption. Crucial chapters in the guide include:
- College Majors with the Best Return on Investment
- 5 Big Financial Aid Lies
- Think Hard Before Borrowing For College
- Consider These Options to Cut College Costs Review Your 529 Plan to Meet College Savings Goals
- 6 Steps To Reducing Your College Loan Costs
This ebook comes in a far-reaching move towards digital, as the US News Weekly magazine is already a digital-only publication. The U.S. News Guide to Paying for College is available by searching HERE.
