    I would definitely say that Chattanooga State has been more than worth the money spent. The instructors and the additional faculty on campus go out of their way to help their students succeed and it pays off in the end. The course material is typically just in-depth enough that you learn the material, but you aren't overloaded. My only issue has been with textbooks, I have purchased a handful of textbooks for my classes and most of them do not get used. So I would be cautious and make sure I really need the book before paying for it, also, go across the street to L and M books, or H and M books, or even Amazon and buy them used to save money!

    I took financial planning classes when i was in High School and it was recommended that i go to a community college to get my basic classes out of the way because it would be cheaper, my teacher was absolutely right, my financial aid covers all of my expenses!
