Literally, if you have a question, this tip sheet has the answer! It covers everything from buying a car, renting/owning a home, investment funds, tax forms, diet/exercise, to decorating your office in a tasteful way. The tip sheet goes in to great detail about planning for the future, and supplies the reader with a sample budget outline to see where saving money and spending money really counts.

It also hits on building a social network in your new place of residency after college, which is extremely important.
