This is a great series and this book is one of the best. I looked for the simplest, most understandable book that would not take me a year to read through. I hadn’t much faith, knowing how techy books, especially for software, were: complex, assuming you know more than you do. It shows you everything you need to do in a really nice, colorful design. The author clearly knows her way around PowerPoint and her tips alone are worth the price of the book and reviews.

According to USA Today , the Higher Education Opportunity Act requires colleges to release required book lists when students register for classes. Publishers are required to disclose prices and revision information to schools

Internet vendors are set to benefit from the law. The newspaper said that Borders launched an online textbook marketplace recently to buy or sell books with other students or sell them to an outside company. Amazon said that more than 1 million textbooks are eligible for its buy-back program through which textbooks can be exchanged for an gift card.

“Until this year, many schools didn’t give the book list until the week before classes, and you really had no choice but to head to the college bookstore,” said Christine Frietchen, editor in chief of, to USA Today.

GE credit cards and Buying furniture interest free

Pop into any australian furniture shop  , electronic shop  or Household  ( Furniture bazaar , Harvey Norman , Myer’s etc) goods shops nowadays  and you have the option to buy now and pay later. Now  this can be quite a good option if you are  low on the $$ at the moment but  you will be able to mend all that in the short time and repay the amount. But if not beware it could be instead : "Buy now , pain later" . You would notice most shops wither give you the GE credit card option or the Hsbc Credit card option. The other good option would be  to get a normal aussie  credit card  like  ——————- and just make use of the interest free terms  and pay back the amounts immediately within the interest free period.

Me and my partner recently  got some furniture from osborne park, perth   on a GE credit card ( interest free for a year as told by the salesman)  and happily   assumed that   we could use the credit card  we got  towards interest free purchases  for a whole year towards the max amount of $5000 which was available on the credit card. we had used up $3000 towards that furniture purchase and still had  limit of $2000.

Like it or not when you sign up for this interest free term " they have sold you a credit card for that company"

Before we  rushed  to  get that new flat Screen TV we thought we should check out the  details of the credit card. Turns out  the  credit card company   would not  give interest free terms if the shop you buying  the furniture from does not have the GE interest free term  purchase scheme available with them.

The useful and usable good information we got out of that ( which is rare) is  that if the shop has that interest free terms  , then we would get the interest free term charged from the date we bought  that goods from that shop and not the previous date our card was activated ( but do check with the provider to be doubly sure ).

Now all this is good ..but remember don’t get caught in the debt cycle. i do remember a time when i very happily used my credit card to fund a overseas holiday  and ended up paying  upto $30 to 50 regularly on a monthly basis to the bank as interest which  added up to quite a bit  when i did the maths and was totally not worth it. i went  on baked beans and bread , eased out of those $3.50   take away coffees and  tightened the belt  and ultimately  paid off in 2 lump sums  and doing much better now. 

Word to the wise : "if you getting a credit card , its best to keep a close eye on it – not closed eye"
