Decisions students make today can affect not only their life now but have an impact on their future. If students make wise financial decisions, life can become a more joyous experience. On the other hand, if students make bad decisions, life may not turn out so well. Personal Finance was written with one purpose: To provide the information students need to make informed decisions that can literally change their life. The 13th provides the information needed to take advantage of opportunities and to help manage their personal finances.

This new edition of Personal Finance is packed with updated information and examples to help students plan for the future and achieve financial security. For example, we have revised important topics like taxes, college loans, health care, and investments to provide the most current information available. Other important topics including credit, housing, legal protection, retirement planning, and estate planning have also been revised in this edition.
