    Recommended if your looking for college and don't really know where to start

    The college handbook is very useful especially if you don't know what college you would like to go to. This book gives about every four to two year public or private colleges universities etc. in the United States. About all the information is there about how much it would be to attend. Also it's an easier way to compare the different schools that interest you the most. It truly is a helpful tool
