My youngest just started college a few weeks ago, so I'm officially done with the college-search process but when I saw this at my local library, I couldn't resist picking this up out of curiosity, and imagine my surprise when I flipped through this.

"Petersen's Four Year Colleges - 2009 Edition" (2,897 pages--it should be sold "by the pound"!) is essentially 2 books in 1. On the one hand there are the 'hard cold facts', presenting 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, most college students remain in their home state. The other 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). Thus, a 2 page profile on GW and American, but not on Georgetown. The HUGE difference with earlier editions is that these college-provided profiles follow immediately after the state-by-state summaries of all the colleges.

I found the book more useful that my daughter did, when we used this. For one, because the book is so huge and outright heavy, it's not user-friendly from that perspective. That said, there is no denying that there is tons of great information in this book, including at the front (in earlier editions if was 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 2 colleges in the country), as well as by entrance difficulty and cost ranges.

It is a magnificent book. You'd have thought it was was Christmas the way my 14 year old daughter opened the box. She's going into the 9th grade and is already planning her college career. It makes a father proud. Thanks for living up the the almost new promotion, when in fact, I doubt it was ever cracked open.
