The Bound-for-College Guidebook offers information about the school-to-college transition in an organized and reader-friendly approach not found in any other guide. Frank Burtnett has assembled frequently asked questions and their answers from counselors who understand what students need to know during the exploration, decision-making and application process. The student exercises contained in the guide allow each reader to strategically organize the search and application process and operate from a position of power and control rather than one of confusion and bewilderment. Armed with this information and skilled in these exercises, the college-bound student is better able to navigate this important transition.

I purchased the Bound-For-College Guidebook for my daughter, but found myself going through the chapters and getting "educated" about the college admission process. It is an easy-read that parents should read along with their children.
