Gr. 9-12. A popular, independent college counselor from New York effectively presents her expertise in a book for individuals and families wading through the college admissions game. Chapters cover a wide variety of topics--from gathering information about colleges and preparing for admissions tests to writing an effective essay and securing financial aid. Each chapter begins with myths and facts and ends with Cohen's personal tips for success. In between are charts to help organize paperwork, questions to help sort out thoughts about what's to be gained from the college experience, and samples from an application package. Cohen's approach is pleasant and positive as she provides specifics and teaches the college-bound how to embrace the application process as part of a self-defining time of life.
