This book is ESSENTIAL if you work with college bound youth. I've ordered a copy for every organization I work with through my Education Consulting work. It is much more comprehensive than the collegeboard.com website and is very easy to use. The descriptions of majors have helped many of my "undecided" students decide what they want to pursue. The comprehensive college listings in the back of the book make it much easier for students to narrow down their college choices by state and highest degree offered in their field of study. A must have hands-down!!

I chose 3 stars only because it is a reference book, and I only bought it because I didn't believe it was available at the library. I hadn't realized it was only reference. It doesn't have explanations about how/why to choose careers, although it does explain what 'majors/minors, etc.' are. It is a good reference. It has how to pick a college based on major, how to get more info, etc. I didn't see info on market trends, salaries which again is probably for a 'career' type book. This book is for finding a college once you know your major. And for that, since this particular one is 2012, is not a good buy. I wound up finding 2014 in my local library.

This wasn't all that helpful because of the fact that Majors and colleges are always changing. This book was okay at the time, but it was a waste of money, it's a huge book that you're not really going to look through entirely and it ends up collecting dust somewhere in your house. This was an unnecessary purchase that I regret. If you want information of majors, call or go in person to the colleges and ask them about their majors, they can tell you more in depth and in detail about it than this book can. This book basically gives the generalization of each major that exists and which colleges offer them. You can do that online. Don't make the same mistake in wasting your money.

While every college in the country has a website, you have to have a clue they exist before you can hunt for them in most cases. This compilation gives an excellent snapshot of 2 and 4 year colleges across the country. College is a time to learn about your community, your country and yourself. You can only broaden your horizons if you have some notion of how far they stretch. This book is an excellent starting place. Each one of my grandchildren has gotten or will get a copy at the appropriate time.

I've got a college bound kid who's casting about for what would be an appropriate major. This book has been a huge help. It is organized logically into 2 sections of descriptions of majors and colleges that offer those majors. The information that's given comes from the real world and is presented clearly and realistically. I'm a web designer and checked Computer Science and Web Development listings first as a litmus test of usefulness. The description of work skills needed and type of jobs and careers that are available from this avenue of study hit the nail right on the head. They gave pros and cons and a feel for "a day in the life" of someone performing this job. Any other major I looked at that I was at all familiar with was just as on the money. This is a fantastic resource!

The Book of Majors 2012 is a great resource given you quick access to the many
majors that are offered by all the colleges in the United States. This way I can
see what is offered at the colleges and get more details about that particular
college by visiting their web-site. This gives me detailed and up to date information
at the turn of a page.

My son was using this book to locate universities with a computer science major. He discovered quite a few universities listed in this book, but not said by the book to offer a bachelor's degree in computer science, actually DO offer computer science. GLAD that we checked the university websites, or he would have not considered some universities.
