MAKE YOUR EDUCATION DREAMS COME TRUE! Worried about how to pay for college? Afraid of drowning in a sea of student debt? Sure, Ben Kaplan once felt that way too.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Ben Kaplan won more than two dozen scholarships--amassing nearly $90,000 in unrestricted college cash for use at any school. He graduated from Harvard debt-free, with virtually the entire cost of his education covered by his scholarship winnings. Known internationally, he has advised thousands of students and parents on college scholarships, financial aid, and personal growth and has appeared on hundreds of television and radio programs.

The book is in very good condition with no writing on the pages. There is some wrinkling of the plastic shrinkwrap that protects the paperback cover.

The pages are bright; they were never white, but a kind of creamy color that is easy on the eyes.
