Written by Michelle C. Muratori, Ph.D., an experienced counselor for gifted young adults who enter college early, Early Entrance to College: A Guide to Success
is a straightforward guide for young people and their families to the many challenges and rewards of embarking on a part-time or full-time college career one, two, or even three or more years sooner than usual. Chapters address factors affecting academic, social, and emotional adjustment to college, as well as expert views and opinions on early college entrance. Of special importance are the chapters that stress why some who gain early entrance to college succeed and some do not, and the do's and don'ts to prepare for the transition and keep one's momentum once enrolled. An absolute “must-have” for anyone considering early college entrance, and packed with valuable information for anyone considering college regardless of age. -- —James A.
