Grade 10 Up—This guide deserves a spot in every school, public, and community college library. Filled with information on helping students make choices about higher education, including college selection and applications, it will also help them make sense of the myriad ways to pay for it. Chapters on scholarships, loans, grants, and financial aid for specialized interests, including the military, survey what is out there in accessible terms. Sidebars like "It's a Fact!" and "Quick Tip" remind students that study-abroad opportunities are for everyone, not just language majors, and that the Coast Guard does not offer ROTC programs. The last two chapters are directories of resources and state higher-education agencies. A lengthy index helps support the substantial amount of information provided, which includes many Web site addresses and phone numbers of various agencies and scholarship providers. The title might shortchange the book's appeal to potential users, not realizing all of the topics that the volume covers, but it will not disappoint those who need a solid overview of both the opportunities and financial challenges that await the college-bound.—Carol Fazioli, Gwynedd-Mercy College, Gwynedd Valley, PA
