Overview

Focus on Personal Finance is a brief, 14-chapter book, covering the critical topics in Personal Finance courses. This 4-color, paperback text is designed and written to appeal to a range of ages, life situations, and levels of financial literacy.
A unique aspect of this text is its active approach. This text will not only get your students thinking about their current situation and financial goals, but also encourage them to put these in writing to use as a guide and revise over the course of their lives. New for this edition, sections are oriented around specific action-items for students. The more a student involves themselves in the assessments, exercises and worksheets provided, the more they will discover about their current habits and how to improve them for greater financial freedom.

Students have many different financial goals, but none are more important than having a basic understanding of financial issues and peace of mind with regard to their decisions. The ultimate goal of Focus on Personal Finance is to get students to this point as a first step to achieving the many financial goals they have set for themselves.

I am only in the first chapter of this book, but do not recommend at all already. Obviously was not checked for accuracy. There are multiple typos in math equations! Incorrect placing of numbers and brackets and extra digits in formulas. If my husband was not a math guru and helped me find the problems, I would be totally lost in this class already. (I am in an online class.)
