An adequate handbook on a subject perplexing to parents and High School students alike. The book is up-to-date, shows the most recent trends in requirements for different professions, even including the draft problem. College or not college; which college (generalizations here), advice on loans. To this point it has been done elsewhere. From this point on, the material is new in a book of the type -- the whole question of making the most of college once there: -- curriculum, career foundations, friendships, health, college activities (occasionally preachy). But on the whole, there are sound answers to recurrent questions.
