Editorial Reviews

The New York Times
These are the kinds of guides a guidance counselor might love, with a mentor's nurturing tone.
"Written for students by students" is the selling point for this series of books. For more information about the series, visit their Web site, The authors are recent graduates of some of America's best colleges-Harvard, Columbia, Middlebury, and Princeton. The contributors are from many colleges throughout the country. The book on choosing the right college covers much of the material found in numerous similar books, but the fact that it has been prepared by students or recent students has a certain comforting appeal. Some of the best advice is summarized like this: allow plenty of time; become a maniac for organization; trust your gut; be flexible; take breaks; know when to stop. These are fleshed out with such statements as "Rarely do things turn out exactly as you planned and if you're unprepared for change you'll be more stressed than if you expect some of it from the start." "If you know that you did your best you'll feel much better with whatever outcome than if you realize that you could've done more or better or sooner." The chapters cover the basics: choosing potential schools, applications, campus visits, SATs, financial aid. An interesting addition to the books of advice for college-bound high school students, especially for students hoping to be accepted by one of the most selective colleges. (Students Helping Students). KLIATT Codes: SA-Recommended for senior high school students, advanced students, and adults. 2003, Natavi Guides, 252p. bibliog., Ages 15 to adult.

Gr 10 Up-A clear and concise guide to the college-application process. The book is peppered with quotes describing the personal experiences of current college students and recent grads and includes tips from admissions deans. Topics include campus visits, essays, tests, etc. An excellent feature to help students from becoming overwhelmed is the time line of things to do from sophomore through senior years, where tasks are broken down by month. The section on financial aid is excerpted from Theresa Fives's Getting through College without Going Broke (Natavi Guides, 2003); readers are referred to it for more detailed advice on the subject. This informative book is an excellent addition.-Laura Younkin, Ballard High School, Louisville, KY Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
