Parents are suffering from college "sticker shock." They read of increasing tuitions and agonize over how they can afford the best school for their children. Kristin Davis contends that things are better than they may seem. In Financing College, she demystifies every aspect of the college aid process, helping parents estimate their bottom line--how much of the total costs a college will actually expect the family to contribute. And that's pretty much the same whether the child's applying to a chic expensive school or a more modestly priced public or private institution.
