  • In Never Pay Retail for College, Walker provides a project management framework for families to find and finance the college experience of their dreams. Using little-known tips, ingenious resources, and some careful planning, you can turn this easy-to-follow guidebook into an incredible 25 to 50 percent off coupon for college.
