Hip and straightforward, The Fiske Guide to Colleges 2003 reliably describes the academic climates and the social and extra-curricular scenes at the "best and most interesting" schools in the United States and Canada. Fiske¹s unique insight into what¹s not to be missed and what¹s to be avoided at each university reveals the academic strengths, the role of athletics, and the social highlights at each school. Professor-student interaction, college setting and scholarships are also hot topics.

This book is very informative and easy to navigate, but it seems to hold a bias. It does not give anything but positive comments on the schools, and that makes it hard to narrow down a list of choices. However, the layout is wonderful and seemingly biased comments nevertheless helpful.
