This book is excellent!
Best use: preparing for interviews.
The interview section is pure genius. This book helps you plan out what you want to convey about yourself, and it also leads you to questions that will not only impress your interviewer, but will also give you real insight into the school they represent. Every interviewer I had commented on how they enjoyed my questions! This book provides you with a list of possible questions to choose from, you can pick the ones most relevant to you and edit them to your needs. This really will help you organize your thoughts. If you're nervous about interviews, pick this up.
(I actually wrote ideas I got from here on a paper that I brought with me to the interviews so I made sure I got to every point I wanted to cover).
This is also wonderful as an introduction to the college searching process. It'll help you weigh your values and give you some insight into the point of view from which colleges wil view your application.
