How Money Are You: Good Debt vs. Bad Debt

While we're usually talking about the importance of getting rid of debt, there's some kinds of debt that are looked upon more favorably than others. They're typically divided into two categories, good debt and bad debt. If you're looking at your overall financial situation, it's best to pay off the bad debt and then tackle the good. Take the quiz to see if you know what falls in to each category.

0 out of 3. Good thing I dont consider ANY kind of debt as good. Cash is always the way to go.
