There are a number of books about the college admission process on shelves all over this country. Frank Burtnett has written one that will be on desks, open and used. I particularly like his FAQ sections and hands-on approach. Admission at its best is a developmental process, and Burtnett has captured this through the personal student exercises. -- R. Russell Shunk, former executive vice president and former dean of admissions of Dickinson College, Pennsylvania
In the Bound-for-College Guidebook, all the steps to finding and applying to colleges are thoroughly explored. * JVibe, April 2009 *
Burtnett's concise and objective writing structure provides a realistic insight into what students can expect. This essential guide is highly recommended for all college-bound students and their parents. * Library Journal, Starred Review, April 2009 *

A very useful tool for students looking for colleges. Burtnett's approach is comprehensive, but cut into good-sized pieces. -- Patrick J. O'Connor, director of college counseling at Roeper School, Michigan
