    From the Publisher

    "Although most students today utilize the Internet to do much of their college browsing, a guide such at this can be indispensable since it provides in one volume a great deal of useful information that would require visits to many different web sites... this should be an annual purchase for most public, high school, and college libraries."
    --Gregory A. Crawford, ARBAonline, American Reference Books Annual 2015
