    This booklet is full of helpful advice but it should also be retitled so that those students entering high school also get the hint to check it out. Yes it does contain a wealth of great information for the junior/senior group gearing up to find the right college with hints how to best succeed when applying to their colleges of choice, but it also included information helpful to the freshman/sophomore set with a helpful checklist to start their high school career and other important insights tow This booklet is full of helpful advice but it should also be retitled so that those students entering high school also get the hint to check it out.

This publication is not only for the students, but their parents as well, with a great pull-out section with information of the ins and outs of financing the college journey. This is a must read if college is your goal or your child's goal and parts should be regularly copied and distributed to all incoming high school freshmen to get them started on the best path early.

    I received my copy as part of the giveaway contest, and like the other reviewer mentioned this book serves as a great reference for those thinking of going to college for the first time. It includes a todo list when applying for college and interviews of students who were accepted for college and what they did to get in. I really liked that they included a section called '9 Ways to wow the admissions.' But I would like to have seen more elaboration on the types of financial aid and scholarships I received my copy as part of the giveaway contest, and like the other reviewer mentioned this book serves as a great reference for those thinking of going to college for the first time. It includes a todo list when applying for college and interviews of students who were accepted for college and what they did to get in. I really liked that they included a section called '9 Ways to wow the admissions.' But I would like to have seen more elaboration on the types of financial aid and scholarships that are offered to students and examples of some student outcomes at the schools mentioned. This would provide me more information on making a decision on which college to attend personally. Also interviews with students who went about a different way when applying for college would also help too. But overall this is a really good reference for students while they are attending high school starting the process.

    I received a copy of this book free from Goodreads Giveaways. I was actually very happy to get a copy of this book as I have a child who is a junior in high school. U.S. News has been ranking colleges for a long time and I remember checking out their rankings when I was applying to college. The first part of the book contains lists of not only the best colleges overall, as ranked by U.S. news and World Report, but the best in specific categories such as Best Regional Universities, Best Engineerin I received a copy of this book free from Goodreads Giveaways. I was actually very happy to get a copy of this book as I have a child who is a junior in high school. U.S. News has been ranking colleges for a long time and I remember checking out their rankings when I was applying to college. The first part of the book contains lists of not only the best colleges overall, as ranked by U.S. news and World Report, but the best in specific categories such as Best Regional Universities, Best Engineering Programs, and Best Online Programs. Aside from the rankings, there are numerous articles on financial aid, tests, activities...lots of helpful information for high school students and their families. The second part of the book is a more detailed college directory. This isn't a book you'll read cover to cover all at once, but it seems to be a good reference and I have passed it onto my teen and I believe we will both get a lot of use out of this book.

If someone is serious about obtaining a higher education, rather that letting someone else do the work for him or her, then at the very least, start with the basics and go from there. I received this magazine in a Goodreads giveaway.

    My granddaughter is a junior in high school and is in the process of researching colleges. I won this book on Goodreads for the express purpose of giving it to my granddaughter to aid in her research. She is thrilled with the wealth of concise information on the attributes of each college. She said it has saved her hours of searching for information on the web and has already narrowed down her possible choices. I would highly recommend this valuable resource to any student with hope of attending col My granddaughter is a junior in high school and is in the process of researching colleges.
