Gr 7–10—Written in a clear, straightforward style, this series assumes readers have no prior knowledge of the featured vocations. In five or six thorough chapters per volume, the authors offer overviews of various fields and the choices students entering them need to consider. The chapters continue with the steps readers can do now to prepare, and what will be expected later. Finding a job, interviewing, paperwork, and what perspective workers will learn on the job are all discussed. The main texts can sometimes look squeezed and the spacing odd. The books contain attractive, captioned color photos; headings; fairly large font; and sidebars with additional information.
