On My Own
The Ultimate How-to Guide for Young Adults : A Manual for Excelling in your Independent LifeUnknown - 2002
Want to be in control of your life? Want to be independent? How do you know what needs to be done when you're living on your own? How do you find an apartment, change your address, hook up utilities, get cable installed? What about finances? How are you going to pay rent? And utilities? And your phone bill? And food? Will you have any money left over for fun? How do credit cards work? How do you balance a checkbook? (And, no, you don't have money in the bank just because you have checks left!) Are you going to college or trade school? What if you want to go, but your parents can't afford to send you? How will you pay for it? Or are you going to work? How do you find a good job? What skills do you need? What if you don't have any work experience? How much money will you make? Which taxes will be taken out of your paycheck -- and how do you pay income taxes each year? On My Own, with its interactive CD-ROM, can help you find the answers to these questions -- and many more! It's the ultimate guide for living successfully on your own! Book jacket.
