Terrific book, very comprehensive and complete. On the front cover the book says:
"What students and parents NEED TO KNOW about getting into college:
- The truth about college rankings
- Understanding the new SAT
- How colleges decide
- Assessing your chances
- Making smart choices
- Preparing strong applications
- Getting financial aid
- Plus lots of tips and tools"

This book delivers all this and more. It was very helpful to us when my son was applying to big-name colleges this year. He was accepted into his perfect choice (USC) among many others, and I'm convinced the tips and explanations in this book helped him achieve his goal.
