My only problem comes from downright wrong information. I'm aware that fact checking a book like this would be almost impossible and that the writers probably rely on information given to them. But, I feel it has to be said. When checking out some of the sites I was eligible for, I noticed that the deadline dates in the books were sometimes wrong. For example, it stated that the deadline for a certain scholarship was March 31st, but when I went to the website, it was actually on March 15. Not a huge mistake, but one that could cost someone some college money. Another problem is the websites themselves. Some are so difficult to find the actual scholarship that I found myself using Google to find them instead of the provided website. Another website was nonexistent. Also, more than one of the scholarships listed actually hadn't existed for a couple of years (this one in particular had been defunct since 2007).
All-in-all, this book is incredible. It does have its flaws, but they are nowhere near bad enough to prevent this book from being amazing. Buy it! You won't regret it.
But worse yet, most of the 5-star reviews are fake, written by the authors. Click through to 'see all my reviews,' and each 'reviewer' wrote about 5 reviews, all 5 stars, and each for books written by Gen and/or Kelly Tanabe.
Shameful. Avoid this book.
Note - I posted this on Jan 16, 2011, so I'm sure the authors will respond to this outing by attempting to tone down their fake 5-star reviews.
While I still have about a fourth of the book more to scan through, I would say there is a good variety. There are some scholarships that target high school level, few that target junior high, and some for general and specific graduate students. If you are a second or third year college undergraduate, I would say more of the scholarships are targeted for that level. Upon purchasing this book I would also highly recommend you use their website updates for their scholarships as a supplement. Each scholarship is given a code in the book that you can enter online and you can click straight from there to the scholarship website.
Overall, I would say it was a good buy. Now let's just hope I can get some of these scholarships!
