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.

A great roadmap for students considering the transition to college. Each chapter includes a list of frequently asked questions as well as personal exercises to work through, such as creating a checklist for a college visit or analyzing the admissions goals of a particular school. This title should be in every high school library and guidance office. (School Library Journal, January 2010)
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, former executive vice president and former dean of admissions of Dickinson College, Pennsylvania)
In the Bound-for-College Guidebook, all the steps to finding and applying to colleges are thoroughly explored. (JVibe, April 2009)

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)
