2.0 out of 5 stars Bad Advice, May 21 2012
This review is from: How Not to Move Back in With Your Parents: The Young Person's Complete Guide to Financial Empowerment (Paperback)
I have to admit. I opened this book with much anticpation. I was very disappointed with the advice Mr. Carrick provided to his readers. As a recent graduate from school I thought I could gain some insights into what I could do better with my finances, and did not.

I heartily disagree with the suggestion to not get credit cards during university, and the seeming theme that parents should pay for a large part of their childrens university education. Taking advantage of your parents may be acceptable for the upper income brackets but not for the average family. How not to move back in with yoru parents - make them pay for your education so you can graduate debt free!!! Genious... pure genious. :(

Do not buy the book. Don't spend more than you have, get a job during university and minimize your student debts - and do not drink your face off every weekend.
