Secrets to Winning a Scholarship

Secrets to Winning a Scholarship, by Mark Kantrowitz

Secrets to Winning a Scholarship, by self-described author Mark Kantrowitz, is a scholarship book aimed at students seeking scholarships, grants, and financial-aid. I have published a professional review of this book.

I have read this book, cover to cover. I have reviewed the Secrets to Winning a Scholarship book for completeness, ease of use of Secrets to Winning a Scholarship, authority of author on the precise subject of "Secrets to Winning a Scholarship", political overtones of Secrets to Winning a Scholarship, content of Secrets to Winning a Scholarship, layout of Secrets to Winning a Scholarship, credibility of souces used by Mark Kantrowitz for his "reviews" of Secrets to Winning a Scholarship, and credibility/background of author Mark Kantrowitz ito discuss the topic "Secrets to Winning a Scholarship."

According to Amazon.com, a new Secrets to Winning a Scholarship book will cost about $7.49. For a used copy of Secrets to Winning a Scholarship, the cost is $5.46. Let me save you some money. Neither price is worth it. The book Secrets to Winning a Scholarship by Mark Kantrowitz is perhaps one of the most disorganized, deceptive, least articulate, lackluster, and redundant scholarship books that I have ever read.

No Secrets in Secrets to Winning a Scholarship

There is absolutely nothing in his book that even remotely qualifies as a secret to winning a scholarship. Everything in his book is public knowledge, and neither does the background of Mark Kantrowritz qualify him to write such a book. The attempts by Mark Kantrowitz to portray himself as a "Financial-Aid Expert" and therefore share "secrets to winning a scholarship" is like Kurt Rambus trying play forward for the Miami Heat without being exposed as simply an average player.

Despite his notorious background as a government informant who assisted the Ronald Reagan administration's clandestine ProjectScholar$scam against sponsors of scholarships promoted towards African-Americans, Mark Kantrowitz does not fit my perception of a "financial-aid expert." I agree that Mark Kantrowitz has been an expert government informant, an expert government snitch, and an expert promoter of his FastWeb website. However, I disgree with government-sponsored media hype that Mark Kantrowitz is a "financial-aid expert."

After I read the book, I went back to the manager of the book store where it was stocked and asked her: "Why is this crap (Secrets to Winning a Scholarship) on the shelf? when there no legitimate "Secrets" in the book. I did not find a single "secret" to winning a scholarship. She told me that others shared my opinion.
