You can balance a checkbook, but a good personal finance brush-up is definitely in order if you want your Golden Years to be truly golden.

There were a few questions that were specific to being in the states that I got wrong..
I can't believe that I only got 55% when I am very good with finances lol

73% Nice job! Hopefully you are putting those mad money skills to work and you are well on your way to a sound financial future.

I do the best I can, but seriously, who actually is able to save up 6 -12 months of income?

When I was single I was great at managing my money.  When I got married the first time it seemed that it went out the window.  Now I am just dealing with not enough money to pay what's coming in.  More going out than what I make sucks!!
