GUIDE
TO
MONEY

A great web site by Credit Repair.com that covers material about earning and saving money and just learning about how to count money. It is important to understand the many ins and outs of money and how it works. Courtney Phillips of "after school care programs.com" and her group of students recommend this site to other students.
