My parents still can¿t believe how much I have won. I used this book to not only find the scholarships that I have won but it also showed me how to win. The strategy section is critical and makes this book stand head and shoulders above the rest. Each chapter in the strategy guide section is dead on in its advice and helped we write a better scholarship essay and understand what the judges are looking for in my application. This is a great book and (at least for me) has paid for itself many times over. Good luck to everyone who is just starting on their scholarship search.Was this review helpful?

I got this book this spring and used it to find over 30 scholarships that fit me. The indexes were easy to use and made finding the right awards easy. But what I liked best about this book is that is also has a lot of strategies and tips to winning scholarships. I have already won over $9,000 for college. This really helped this fall and I will continue to use ¿Get Free Cash For College¿ to apply for more awards and hope to double my winnings next year. I highly recommend this book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

In short, I found this book useful in finding scholarships to apply to and in learning how to write a winning application. You should know that this book has two parts. The first is a strategy guide filled with tips and advice on how to write a winning scholarship entry. The second is a huge directory of scholarships. The indexes are very useful in finding which scholarships to apply to and there are a bunch of them in this book. One that I found worked best for me was the Hobbies/Interests/Talents index. I found many scholarships that I will be applying to and will also use the great advice in the first part fo the book to make sure my application is a winner.Was this review helpful?
