My hundreds of new best friends Oct 10, 2007
Advice from the heart ... the good, the bad and the ugly experiences of those who have already tread where you are about to go. No snobby neighbors, no competing colleagues, just hundreds of heads sharing their stories in easy-to-read snippets. It's a well-balanced presentation that allows you to benefit from the reflections of other parents who have already faced the challenges of kids, colleges and chaos. My college years are too far behind me to be relevant today, so this book was a much-needed wake-up call.
You are not alone Oct 1, 2007
This was my first experiece with Hundreds of Heads publishing. While it was not what I expected, the book is full of comments by other parents sharing what did and did not work for them. Topics covered include when to begin the application process, test scores, how to know when to back off, what do do when your child was not accepted, and much more. The book is easy to read and also includes many useful websites for parents. Just seeing me read the book helped get my daughter motivated.
Keep Your Sanity... Sep 7, 2007
Navigating the college admissions process can be much more difficult than you might imagine. So, why not let parents who've already done it give you a helping hand - make that hundreds of helping hands. The tips range from heartwarming to humorous to extremely helpful. They will enable you not only to survive, but to be successful while keeping your sanity intact. From deciding when to start looking for colleges through the separation process, this is the ultimate source book for parents. More than highly recommended!
How to Have Fun Getting Your Kid into College! Aug 16, 2007
This book doesn't give you a step by step process. I don't think anyone can do that because everyone's situation is different. What it does is provide you with wisdom from hundreds of real life experiences -- some mistakes and some successes. It's almost like having a support system of friends that are there to help you.
We are in the thick of the college application process right now with our daughter just starting her senior year. This book has taken a lot of the stress out -- and put a great deal of the excitement back into getting her accepted to the right school for her!
A Parent's Bible! Aug 13, 2007
I wish there was a book a like this for every phase, milestone and crucible moment that my kids will go through. This book will not reduce the your child's process of applying to and getting accepted to college, but parents can breath much easier knowing what to expect from so many others who have been through it before. The book is organized brilliantly and presents all sides of every issue, from when to start the process to how to handle getting the news. If only this book had been around when for own parents, who mostly relied on my high school counselor and whatever they remembered from their experiences 25 years earlier.
