I am going to be posting the below review of Jennifer Cook-DeRosa's new book Homeschooling For College Credit on the Amazon website, but I'm posting my review here on DegreeForum.net as well, because I'm sure most of the people who post here would like to congratulate Jennifer on her book. I'm also guessing that Jennifer hasn't said too much about the book because she doesn't want to appear like she is using these forums as a means to sell her book. BTW, I don't know her. I just liked her book and enjoy reading her posts here on this site.
If you are a parent of a homeschooled child then this is a MUST BUY book. It is absolutely possible for your homeschooled student (or even traditionally schooled student) to earn a substantial amount of college credit before even graduating high school. Earning an Associates Degree, or for that matter an entire Bachelors Degree is possible while still in high school. The cost of earning the credits is not only inexpensive, but the savings from following the advice in Jennifer's book will save the typical college student not only thousands of dollars but tens of thousands of dollars.
Her book covers everything from the details of how to earn the credit, to building of curriculum, to creating transcripts for applying to universities, to the study methods required to pass tests (her 6 layer method rocks), to student loans and other financial concerns, and details like knowing that earning an AS degree is FAR more valuable than earning an AAS degree. This book is an absolutely wonderful resource with information you won't find in any other book.

The book does need another round of proofreading. However, one thing I dislike more than grammar errors is a reviewer that whines about them at the expense of the wealth of knowledge found in the book, so enough said about that.
