The Bound-for-College Guidebook offers information about the school-to-college transition in an organized and reader-friendly approach not found in any other guide. Frank Burtnett has assembled frequently asked questions and their answers from counselors who understand what students need to know during the exploration, decision-making and application process. The student exercises contained in the guide allow each reader to strategically organize the search and application process and operate from a position of power and control rather than one of confusion and bewilderment. Armed with this information and skilled in these exercises, the college-bound student is better able to navigate this important transition.

About the Author:

Frank Burtnett is president and principal consultant for Education Now, an independent consulting firm focused on helping people with the school-to-college and school-to-career transitions. A former executive director of the National Association for College Admission Counseling, his career experiences have found him working in schools, colleges, agencies, organizations, and the private sector.

Review:

There are a number of books about the college admission process on shelves all over this country. Frank Burtnett has written one that will be on desks, open and used. I particularly like his FAQ sections and hands-on approach. Admission at its best is a developmental process, and Burtnett has captured this through the personal student exercises.--R. Russell Shunk, executive vice president and former dean of admissions of Dickinson College, Pennsylvania

Frank Burtnett has created a reader-friendly guide to helping the college-bound student navigate his or her challenging journey. The information he presents, complimented by the student exercises and Frequently Asked Questions, covers the process from A to Z.--William E. Cox, president and CEO of Diverse Issues in Higher Education magazine

A very useful tool for students looking for colleges. Burtnett's approach is comprehensive, but cut into good-sized pieces.--Patrick J. O'Connor, director of college counseling at Roeper School, Michigan
