CriticasThis Spanish-language version of Peterson's widely trusted guide to getting ready for college provides answers to common questions by students and parents who are going through the difficult process of choosing a college or vocational school. Arranged chronologically, the book begins with advice for ninth graders beginning to consider their career options, and ends with a section on life and work after college. The guide provides useful information on such topics as internships and summer jobs, college applications, loans, and other financial aid. It also covers military careers, job hunting, and how to deal with drugs, alcohol, and sexual harassment. The chapters include FAQs, sidebars with websites and tips-from 10 things to avoid when taking a test to recommended dates for taking standardized tests-questionnaires, and, in some cases, practice application and financial aid forms. Readers will greatly benefit from the state-by-state list of universities and certificate institutions with two- and four-year programs, as well as from the list of organizations on where to go for help. Highly recommended for all bookstores and high school and public libraries.
