    One of my favorites!! Illinois School Counselor

    The layout of this book and the information included, sets it apart from many of the college guides on the market. Students can quickly look at the highlights listed for each college and decide if they want to read more about the school. The detailed description of each school is well written, easy to read and includes information that other books don't have. I love the "You May Not Know" sections because it brings to life some of the history and/or traditions of the schools, creating a more personal connection for the reader. In addition, the information listed in financial aid and scholarships is invaluable because it identifies various scholarships and aid available to families. I will definitely use this book with my college bound students and their families and recommend it to anyone who's looking for a "must have" college book.
