Top College Guides

A Listmania! list by Brian R. McElroy (San Diego, CA USA)
The list author says: "A list of my favorite college guides."
The Best 376 Colleges, 2012 Edition (College Admissions Guides)
1.  The Best 376 Colleges, 2012 Edition (College Admissions Guides) by Princeton Review
The list author says:
  "This book is concise and specific, and it provides perspectives from actual students at the school.  Plus, there is a fun section where they rank the schools in various categories, such as the quality of the food in the dining hall, the diversity of the student body, and the accessibility of the professors."

The Big Book of Colleges 2012
2.  The Big Book of Colleges 2012 by College Prowler
The list author says:
  "This book (and the rest of the books in the College Prowler series) is clearly meant to try to dethrone the Princeton Review's grasp on the "cool college guide" market, and they do a pretty good job.  Though not quite as focused as "The Best 376 Colleges," the Prowler guide is full of interesting, clever and random observations about the schools.  Great for those who are more detail-oriented."
