    Cursory Information - A bit of a disappointment

    Not terrible but not as good as a lot of college guides. The information on each school is so trite that it feels like they used practically the same wording for multiple schools. I lost count of the schools where 'everyone was class president, valedictorian, whatever.'. It has basic statistics but none of the descriptions give a real feel for the school or its student body and it's missing some of the schools typically found in College Guides. I had bought the Fiske Guide to Colleges and thought it was terrific but wanted another point of view. I was somewhat disappointed.
