Good overview of all the resp rules. I have referred back to this book many times to check on different rules.

Format: Paperback
This is about 137 pages, with close to 37 of those pages being blank pages or just chapter headings, and a lot of space wasting throughout. Considering the length of the book, it seems fairly costly.

That said, this book offers tips that could save you thousands of dollars in the long run. Besides covering the basics of why you should (or shouldn't) start an RESP and how to go about opening the account, Holman explains the ins and outs of contributions and grants, and briefly introduces concepts such as the investment time horizon and investor comfort levels. Possibly the best section, Holman also explains how to get the most out of the RESP if the beneficiary does not go to post-secondary.

The book also includes a chapter each for additional programs available to Alberta, Quebec, and low-income families.

I just finished reading The RESP Book. It takes a complicated matter and simplifies it in a very user-friendly way. I had spent days Googling RESPs and still felt lost. This book clarified everything in 2 hours!!

This book is an excellent resource for any parent (or any Canadian) opening a RESP for a child or family. Mike does a superb job summarizing the ins & outs of opening, contributing and withdrawing from RESPs, including the tax implications and investment options. I highly recommend this book!

If you have kids or plan on having some in the near future I highly recommend you read this book. You will understand exactly how the RESP works and be able to fully take advantage of it. The book is easy to read and understand. The price of the book is worth it for sure.
