Awesome resource  Mar 22, 2006
I am a parent and I really loved this college guide! I have read several guides and this really did a great job of reviewing the colleges from an African-American perspective. My husband went to a historically black university (HBU) and he felt the comparison of the historically black university (HBU) to the predominately white universities was incredibly accurate.

Thsi book exceeded my expectations!
 
It's A Great Help Guide ! ! !  Oct 3, 2003
This is a tip to students and parents. If you have a good student who is trying to get into a select school, this is the best help guide I've seen in years. My daughter and friends made top schools using this one
 
An Amazon Customer  Sep 12, 2003
The information provided in the book was informative, however over 1/3 of the letters I mailed out requesting scholarship information were returned due to bad addresses.
 
Extremely Helpful Resource for Student and Parents  Sep 21, 2001
This guidebook has been meticulously researched and gives readers the kind of heads-up needed to get in the best schools and find money to pay for it. Solid info and insider coaching for every phase of the process. Invaluale.
 
A Must Have!!!  May 25, 2001
This book is outstanding! I should have ordered two copies, because my daughter and I hounded each other for the book. We couldn't put it down. It gives great advice on every aspect of the application process. It gave my daughter the extra confidence that she needed. My daughter took it to school and everyone who saw the book wanted to know where and how to get it. Every student should have a copy of this book. I highly recommend it.
