About this item

Advertisers are well-known for targeting teenagers and have a firm reason for doing so: Teenagers spent close to $190 billion in 2006, and that figure is expected to jump to approximately $209 billion by 2011. It seems quite obvious that teenagers know how to spend money, but do they know how to save?

Personal financial planning is the process of establishing your own financial goals and finding a way to reach them. It is an ongoing process that involves examining all existing resources, developing a plan to use them, and systematically implementing the plan to achieve your goals. While teenagers yield immense spending power, many lack the financial knowledge necessary to manage their money wisely. The Complete Guide to Personal Finance: For Teenagers is a reliable and relevant source of financial information in which teenagers will find a wealth of useful information.

In this new book, you will learn how to get and manage credit, how to make and stick to a budget, how to save for college, how to determine your needs versus your wants, how to pay for a car, how to finance college, how to manage risk, how to open a bank account, how to write a check, how to balance a checkbook, how to avoid the pressures of consumerism, and how to avoid financial mistakes.

You will also learn about investment options, taxes, checks, debit cards, credit cards, and basic budget tips. This book is filled with helpful suggestions from financial and family counselors, and you will discover creative ways to get a jumpstart on your financial future and use money responsibly. Even if you have had a few missteps along the way, you will be able to learn from your mistakes and get on the path to financial well-being.
