    “I want to become a licensed medical perfusionist” says Julie Huong, a health care aide who lives in Nevada. “I am studying for my state’s licensing exam, but it has been hard to figure out what qualifications I need to earn my certification.

    Barry Lenson

    According to “Unexpected ways to save for college,” a video on Bankrate.com, one of the best ways to save money on college is to know your major before you enroll in college and start paying for courses.
