Good book, easy to read, and full of lots of great advice. For instance, what to do if you're on a college's wait list--which is happening to more exceptional students every year! DON'T simply turn in the card saying you'd like to stay on their waiting list. Write, send your latest terrific grades, send reports of the newest things you've done since you'd applied that they might not know about.... All sorts of great advice on tons of other important parts of getting into a really good college. It was very helpful to us!
