The Bound-for-College Guidebook, now in its second edition, addresses the high school to college transition from A to Z. The guidebook provides students and parents with the information and tools they need for effective exploration, decision-making and application for admission and financial aid. The student exercises offered throughout the book help the student create a personal college guidance portfolio and the dozens of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) address everything a student wants to ask and a few he/she didn’t think to ask. It is “must” reading before and throughout the high school-to-college navigation process. The Bound-for-College Guidebook is the perfect study guide for counselors and educators to use in conducting workshops or classes on the school-to-college transition.
A great road map for students considering the transition to college. Each chapter includes a list of frequently asked questions as well as personal exercises to work through, such as creating a checklist for a college visit or analyzing the admissions goals of a particular school. This title should be in every high school library and guidance office.
