I am on my last college searching tour: my youngest, a junior, is in the midst of mapping out her have list of cearly choices, and we are going through quite a few of the college search books.

"Petersen's Four Year Colleges - 2007 Edition" (2,922 pages--it should be sold "by the pound"!) is essentialy 2 books in 1. The first 1000 pages of the book present a summary of about 2,200 colleges around the US. On the average, all colleges get about half a page description. Very helpful is that the colleges are lumped state-by-state, because, let's face it, many many college students remain in their home state. The second part of the book is a more in-depth (two pages) profile of about 1,000 colleges. It is important to understand that those in-depth profiles are NOT written up by the book's editors, but instead by the colleges themselves (and the colleges have paid for this placement).

I found the book more useful that my daughter did. For one, because the book is so huge and outright heavy, it's not particularly user-friendly. That said, there is no denying that there is tons of great information to be found in this book, including at the end of the book 200 pages of colleges by major (which is VERY helpful if you are into a specific area of interest--as an example, you can major in "Textile Science" in only 3 colleges around the country), as well as by entrance difficulty and cost ranges.
