The increase in diverse student populations and the growing complexity of higher education have made academic advising a critical component of student success. This comprehensive professional reference overviews academic advising as a function and a process. Practitioners will find much valuable information on the intricacies of student advising, and administrators will find a thorough treatment of the functions necessary for the effective delivery of this important service. The handbook gives special attention to the needs of particular student populations and offers considerable coverage of academic advising as a profession. The book begins with a thoughtful glance at the history and development of advising. It then turns to some of the significant administrative matters related to the successful delivery of this service. The following chapter considers the essential skills and materials needed by academic advisers of all types. Because of the importance of college as preparation for a vocation, a chapter explores the link between career counseling and other forms of advising. A lengthy discussion of the needs of disabled students, adult students, and other special populations follows, along with a look at the needs of specific racial and ethnic groups. The closing chapters treat important professional issues, including evaluation and professional development. Counselors, administrators, and all those involved in the academic advisory process will find this book a much needed reference tool.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Gordon has drawn on her years of experience as an advisor, author, and adminisrator to compile a clear, concise, and comprehensive view of the state of affairs within the field of advisement in higher education. . . . In keeping with her dedication to the profession of advising, Virginia Gordon has given us a resource to rise to the challenge. . . . Throughout, specific advising suggestions and checklists punctuate (her) clear presentation of the issues and offer solutions to common advising situations. This is a text whose time has come. The Handbook of Academic Advising pulls together the combined wisdom of many advisors and researchers in the field of student development into one convenient sourcebook. My recommendation is that every administrator with responsibility for advising should own at least three copies of this text: one for personal use, one to give to new administrators or faculty, and a third to give to the campus's most active and visible advisor as a token of recognition."-The Journal of the National Academic Advising Association
"The Handbook is worthy of perusal and should be included in every academic program's library of relevant literature."-Journal of Higher Education
