The book specifically covers each individual program and some details about it, and is very useful if you are just looking for the right program. The one thing it does not do is give direction, it assumes you have an idea of exactly what you want to do and then gives you some options of programs that will get you there. It's nicely laid out and is probably a lot easier than internet searching for the same information, at least it was for me.

Plenty of guides have the same information included in this one. However, if you are in the throes of researching specialties or fields of interest, this guide is for you. The book organizes its schools by specialty. For example, if you are looking to focus your research on eating disorders, you don't have to filter through 100 schools to find the 3 most applicable to your interest. This guide lists each specialty and the schools whose labs and research are most applicable. It includes all the other general guidelines and worksheets to gather and organize your personal research into graduate programs in Clinical and Counseling Psychology. Great resource.
