Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
You might wonder what value means when a top 10 best value colleges list includes Amherst College and its $29,000+ tuition. But when you read the three-page Amherst write-up in the alphabetical listing of Princeton Review's list of 77 values, it makes more sense. Most of the colleges listed are less well known than Amherst (Truman State University? Grove City College?), but all are on the list for a different reason. Amherst, for instance, is listed for its combination of total college experience and generous allotment of financial aid. The heart of the book is the individual college sections, and they are thoughtfully organized and full of useful statistical information on admissions, student life, and academics. Key short sections discuss such topics as Bang for Your Buck and What Do Graduates Do? An index in the back lists schools by state, so students can browse geographically. Indexes by some other categories (tuition?) would have been nice, too, but this is a useful book, despite the gimmicky title. KLIATT Codes: P—Recommended. 2004, Random House, Princeton Review, 305p. index., Ages adult.
