College Prep 101 aims to help high school students, their parents, and those who work with them, prepare for and be successful in college. It's the result of over a decade of creating and managing a web site with the same name and the author's spending 7 years recruiting high school students and over a decade in academic advising at a public university. Written in a very readable, no-nonsense style, chapter titles include: Planning for College, Choosing a College, College Entrance Exams, The Application Process, Visiting College Campuses, College and Money, Making the Transition to College, What to Bring to College, Sharpening your Study Skills, Time Management, and Thoughts for Parents. The author's philosophy is the more a student knows about what to expect from the college selection process, and from college in general, the more likely they are to be successful. Everyone should be able to pick out pieces of advice they can use, from the high-achieving scholar to the 'just-getting-by' average joe, to either's parents.
