    Excellent African American college guide

    This college guide is an excellent resource that answers the hard questions of how black students fit into different college atmospheres. It not only deals with white institutions but it also deals with black institutions. It is very important that the mental health of your child be considered when they enter into the new world of college life, and this guide helps answer some of these concerns. College atmosphere can have the impact of success or failure for your child. This book helps parents and students figure out the best fit for a college. It deals with important self esteem and social issues for the individual. It is a useful resource for not only black students, but students of other minorities that face similar obstacles of fitting into the majority world of White America.

    Finally A real college guide for African Americans

    I advise high school students on college at a predomantly black high school and all of the other guides did not meet my needs. Most of them only include information on black colleges, but most black students do not go to black colleges (onlyl about 40% do). This guide includes information on just about any college you can think of including all of the black colleges. Also it has information on financial aid and the admissions process. This is the first guide that has all the information you need. You won't need to buy a book on financial aid, writing essays, and all of the other aspects of college selection. Now you only need one book.
