When I decided to learn the ins and outs of personal finance as a college student, I devoured one book after another. While a short article or video can be informative about specific issues, books allow you to delve deeper and come away with a more nuanced understanding of the topic.
In honor of National Book Day, here are some of the best financial books for college students.
“Broke Millennial: Stop Scraping By and Get Your Financial Life Together” by Erin Lowry
Students who are new to personal finance will appreciate learning the basics from Lowry, a personal finance expert and former Mint contributor. This book breaks down basic financial concepts like choosing a bank, finding your credit score, creating a budget and tackling student loans.
