Gr 7-12 These books complement each other with clear, concise, and practical tips for young adults not planning to attend a traditional four-year college. . . . Careers Without College is somewhat misnamed, since a few careers in it do require minimal college course work. (Specialized training and education requirements are fully explained in Dubrovin's book.) Each particular occupation covered includes a basic job description, preparation needed, and career outlook. Jobs range through the fields of sales and marketing, health, office and business, industry, building trades, and service industries. College : Yes or No? (Arco, 1983) by William F. Shanahan is stronger on most topics covered here but its facts and addresses are quickly dated, and it omits self-employment as a choice. Alternative Education & Training handles the decision-making and career planning element, then delves into the methods for reaching career goals. Those methods include alternative college programs (correspondence courses, ``weekend college,'' etc.), attending trade or vocational schools, learning on the job, military training, apprenticeships, and self-employment. These books have good quality, non-sexist, black-and-white photographs. Attractive and effectively organized, they are written in a straightforward style. Besides providing helpful career planning information, both encourage the ideas of lifelong learning and continually keeping career options open. Diane P. Tuccillo, Mesa Public Library, Ariz.
