I don't know if I learned a single thing about finance in college, other than that if you spend $3.50 every day on cheese sticks you end up having to refill your meal card a month early, a process which actually costs money.

Probably 60% of what I know about finance comes from Dad teaching me to read out of the Wall Street Journal ("Dad, whats a dewibativ?" "I'll tell you when your older, son"), 20% comes from being a math nerd, and 20% comes from practical life experience. And really, all the math you need to know for personal finance they teach you by the end of middle school.
