Review:

"I was mesmerized by the attention to detail in this book! The descriptive nature of this book gave me the impression I was strolling across a campus in the middle of a typical day in the life of a college student."  —John Beischel, career and college counselor and department chair, Princeton High School



"Finally . . . one college book that does it all by providing relevant statistics in an easy-to-read format and helpful text to better understand the nuances of each university."  —Dr. Robin Boren, independent college counselor and former department chair, Dakota Ridge High School

"Choosing the right college can be a daunting task. Academics, student life, and financial considerations have an impact on the decision making process. This comprehensive guide will be a valuable tool for students and parents."  Christine Bland, gifted resource teacher, West Chester East High School



"The most honest guide to colleges that I have come across. Not only does this book present the positive aspects of each school, it also discusses potential drawbacks. Throughout the guide, you hear from various students on the campuses who maintain the same degree of honesty. You really get a feel for what it may be like to walk onto each campus."   Peggy Espada, director, Wilkes University Upward Bound



"If you are exploring colleges, The Ultimate Guide to America’s Best Colleges should be your first purchase! Up-to-date information both positive and negative that you may not find elsewhere."   Linda Kimmel, college and career Specialist, Irvington High School
