Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

For a good how-to manual, pick up "Graduation Debt: How to Manage Student Loans and Live Your Life," by financial blogger Reyna Gobel.– Claudia Buck, Sacramento Bee http://www.sacbee.com/2010/06/27/2850627/digging-out-of-debt.html

Reyna Gobel has a message for college graduates who, like her, find themselves carrying around student loan debt the size of a small mortgage: Don’t wait until you pay it back to start living your life. – Kimberly Palmer, Usnews.com http://money.usnews.com/money/blogs/alpha-consumer/2010/6/18/the-smart-way-to-pay-off-student-loans.html

True to the CliffsNotes brand, this compact guide walks you through the student loan labyrinth starting with "know what you owe." – Michelle Singletary, The Washington Post http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/06/05/AR2010060500721_2.html?sid=ST2010060503047

Rather than take a judgmental approach, Gobel acknowledges that young people make mistakes – the idea for the book came from her own botched approach to student loans -- and makes realistic suggestions to fix problems. – foxbusiness.com, Emily Driscoll http://www.foxbusiness.com/story/personal-finance/financial-planning/college-education/break-free-gigantic-graduation-debt/
