College Majors Handbook with Real Career Paths and Payoffs: The Actual Jobs, Earnings, and Trends for Graduates of 60 College Majors 4.5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.

The outline of this book lists employment categories first and relates that to college majors and concentrations. -Both a positive and practical approach. The publisher, (new since 2004 publication), did not have a new edition planned as of June, 2009. -Equally "readable" as well as a reference.

Going to College'? Ok here is a real world analysis on the change the degree will make on your financial life. I am thankful that someone asked and answered the question, what will I earn with this degree and what are others doing currently with the same degree? 4 star book no complaints.
