The materials reviewed for the bibliography may be useful for secondary schools, postsecondary institutions, and adult groups. Listings are offered under seven headings: comprehensive references; the individual consumer in the marketplace and in society; money management; consumer credit; buying goods and services (subdivided into housing; foods; transportation; clothing; health services, drugs, and cosmetics; recreation; furnishings and appliances; and insurance); savings and investments; and taxes. Within each category the citations are grouped into student references (printed materials only) and teacher references (printed and audiovisual material). Information includes author, title, name of publisher or supplier from whom materials may be ordered, publication date, cost, appropriate learning situations, the reading level, and an annotation. The seven appendixes include a guide for ordering materials, a list of publishers and suppliers, the evaluation instrument used in selecting items for the bibliography, a guide for determining reading levels for student references, a consultant list, and a list of Illinois consumer organizations.
