Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 10 Up—A wealth of advice on selecting the right college and being successful there is based on solid factual information as well as the authors' extensive university teaching experience. The text is straightforward, conversational, and easy to read and understand, with each chapter organized into numerous subtopics. Ten chapters cover everything from the decision to attend college and making visits to majors of study, acceptance, and covering tuition. Other information includes how to avoid common mistakes made in the selection process, basing a decision on teaching quality and reasonable cost, making an impressive application, and how to succeed both academically and socially. Sidebars throughout have additional material, and tables of statistics and figures pertain to cost comparisons, taxes, curriculums, etc. An extensive, categorized list of Web sites to access for current information is included. A lengthy bibliography and detailed index complete this useful volume.—Susan Shaver, Hemingford Public Schools, NE
