I read this book while skipping over some parts like for Military Veterans, Divorced Parents, etc. since these do not apply to me and while the book is interesting since I am two years away from having my first child in college it solidified my belief that I am not likely to receive financial aid.
I used the worksheets in the back to calculate my EFC and they seem to fall apart or become incredibly hard to follow at Table 8.
This is a good read for any parent that has a child or children that plan on going to college.
I read the 2016 edition which is not yet pictured on this book review site.
