This is a great book for those folks just starting the college admissions process. It really has some great advice and the 'college finder' helps get discussions going as to what type of college your child might prefer and what colleges might be the right fit. It is also written with a sense of humor that makes it very readable. I run an online college admissions group and the general consensus is this book is a winner.
