4.0 out of 5 stars Digestible in a four hour plane ride Feb. 19 2014
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.
