Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
The Fiske Guide to Colleges has been a best-seller for good reason. Few other books can capture the highlights and character of a school in such a clear and efficient manner.

The Fiske Guide to Colleges is a well-organized and comprehensive source of information on colleges and universities. The style of writing would appeal to both students and their families, as it is appropriately serious; that is, not slipping into adolescent vernacular, but without being overbearing.
