Would you like to be able to cut, in one fell swoop, thousands of dollars off the tuition price at the college of your choice? Do you wish you could do this simply by tapping into the little-known, forgotten, or overlooked programs and policies at the school itself?

Well, it's time to stop wishing and start saving. In HONEY, I SHRUNK THE TUITION!, the first-of-its-kind CD-ROM guide from paying-for-college expert Ben Kaplan, you’ll learn how to tap into the tuition-saving opportunities offered by the nation’s leading institutions of higher education. Based on hundreds of hours of in-depth research, it’s actually three guides in one—with separate volumes for private universities, public universities, and liberal arts colleges—all included on one easy-to-use CD-ROM. That's 440 pages of essential paying-for-college discounts and deals!

First, you’ll learn about the lucrative scholarship awards offered by the best and most popular colleges and universities in the land. For each school, you’ll read detailed profiles of their scholarship opportunities, how to apply, and what it takes to win. You’ll discover a wealth of general merit-based scholarships, as well as tuition prizes in specific fields such as music, drama, art, business, engineering, and medicine.

Think scholarship research has to be a frustrating experience? With this guide in your computer, you’ll have the most prestigious and lucrative school-specific scholarships—and the awards that even the most diligent scholarships sleuths have trouble finding—only a few mouse clicks away.

Then it’s on to part two and the wonderful world of free tuition credits. You’ll learn how to use Advanced Placement (AP), College-Level Examination Program (CLEP), International Baccalaureate (IB), Dante’s Subject Standardized Tests (DSST), SAT II, and other standardized tests to save as much as $30,000 in college costs (or even more). In fact, for many of these tests, you only need to answer 40 to 50 percent of the questions correctly to save big-time tuition dollars!

Not only does the guide help you decide which tests to take for the maximum savings, but also allows you to instantly compare—via the innovative Scholarship Coach Tuition Savings Calculator™—the college-credit-for-testing policies at your favorite schools. For each school, you’ll have at your fingertips an easy-to-read chart of the specific tests that earn college credit, the amount of credit awarded for a given test score, and the hundreds or thousands of tuition dollars you can potentially save by taking each test.

With the aid of this guide—plus the special bonus audio messages from Ben Kaplan included on the CD—you or your child will be able to incorporate critical financial information into your college planning months or even years ahead of time. The result is not only a more informed choice about which college to attend, but also a better decision on which preparatory academic courses to enroll in, which college credit tests to take, and which scholarships to position yourself to win.

So why pay more for tuition when you don’t have to? Let the tuition shrinking start now!
