The All-in-one College Guide
Overwhelmed. That’s the most common word college-bound students and parents use to describe the process of choosing, getting into, and finding the money for college.
And all the fat college guidebooks and web sites merely add to the information overload. There are tomes on everything from how to write a college essay to how to land a scholarship.
But finally, you can find an antidote to “overwhelm:” The All-in-One College Guide. In just 240 accessible yet authoritative pages, this book tells even the most serious college-bound student and family everything they need to know to choose, get into, find the money for, and make the most of college.
And this is no mere distillation of conventional wisdom. The author, Dr. Marty Nemko, is one of the smartest college counselors in the business, and he fills the book with little-known smart ideas on how to make the process not only easier but more successful. A few examples:
