This is a wonderful book on how to plan and prepare for College Applying and College life when you are in high school or just graduated. I am so glad that I found this book because now I can prepare for college when I enter into next year. Although the book is majorly focused on juniors and seniors, it still has information for the freshman or sophomore who wants to take control before it's too late. I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anybody.
