Money Magazine rated the top 711 schools in the United States. That ranking was based on three different criteria.
- The quality of education which includes how quickly students graduated, how the students and professors evaluated the school and the financial well-being of the school itself.
- Affordability which means the amount of debt students acquire for attending the school, the value of the degree a student earns, and the affordability of the school for low-income students.
- The outcome which is to say the amount of money a graduate makes, if the school’s reputation actually helps the student get a job, and if the student’s job helps them move from one socio-economic class to another.
Below are all of the colleges in California that were ranked by Money Magazine.

The way I study for a test is simple. First, I start off by completing any study guide I am given in class. Most of the time a worksheet is given a day or two before the test. While I am completing my worksheet I use any notes that were given to me or that I’ve written down. Then as I am writing on the worksheet I recite all of the answers in my head so that I remember them. My next step is to read the question while covering the answer and see if I can solve the question with the same answer as the first time. After I solve the problem I uncover the question and check to see if my second answer is correct. Next, I usually have a friend read them out to me while trying to remember what the answer is. Normally by now the questions and answers are on flashcards. Last, but not least, I repeat my last couple steps again just to make sure to remember every single answer.
