College Is For Suckers -The First College Guide You Should Read is a frank and to-the-point "buyer beware" for anyone considering a college "vacation." This book offers insightful information that could save you thousands of dollars! While exposing the "hype" associated with a traditional college education, this book provides you with valuable options for higher education in your pursuit of a successful future.

Even if you are dead set on going to college, you can't afford to be without this book! Be aware of what you, as a college consumer, can realistically expect from a traditional four-year college. Don't be a sucker!

College Is For Suckers -The First College Guide You Should Read...

  • Shatters myths about the need for a traditional liberal arts education.
  • Compares the "hype" with the actual value of a four-year degree in today's market.
  • Peels away the extra fluff associated with the "college experience" and shows how you can be a "well-rounded" party animal on your own while attending trade schools, vo-tech programs or apprenticeships that actually prepare you for a career.
  • Provides thought-provoking points to help you decide if college is necessary for you, or at least necessary for you now.
  • Explains how college has actually "dumbed-down" due to grade inflation, ridiculous requirements, and outdated curriculums.
  • Offers creative alternatives for achieving a marketable education.
  • Lists valuable resources for obtaining knowledge, credentials and experience (other than a four-year college) and shares the secrets of successful professionals who never graduated from college.
  • Explains the dangers of student loans and how college is not always a good "investment."
