"An excellent purchase for libraries..." School Library Journal

  • my son applied to college in early fall and it was a miserable experience for both of us.

    i am not blaming his high school but there is no way that busy guidance counselors can give a lot of support, specific school information and guidance for this process. most of them are reduced to paper organizers/pushers for the kids. maybe in high end private schools guidance counselors can spend more time helping students but not in my son's high school.

    so, this book is great because if you (parent) and student sit down and read the whole book (it's a straight forward read; not complicated) then the information is valuable and very useful. once you read it you will stop freaking out about the financial aid process, the essays, the interviews, early decision process and the common application and you will be able to handle helping your kid get into college.

    best of all, you will stop listening to all other numb-nut parents while they drone on about the college admission process and how unfair and awful it is. i got sick and tired of the rumors and mis-information that supposedly intelligent adults passed around to their kids and other parents. buy the book because the Fiske Books are well written and respected academically. you will gain the knowledge that the numb-nuts lack.

  • Based on the other reviews, I though this book would give me wonderful insight into helping my daughter with her college essay. Instead, I found this book to be the same as every other book about essays. It provides a bunch of essays written by other students that went to college, but did not provide any insight into why the essay was considered exceptional. It is inferred that, because the child got into college, the essay must be good. However, is is more likely that the student got into college based on his/her grades in spite of the essay.
    I need a book that helps me differentiate a good essay from a bad one, not books that show me a bunch of essays that other students had written.
    I have found some good books, but none of them contain a lot of essays. They talk about what makes a good essay rather than providing a bunch of essays.

  • One of the better books available to high school students as they prepare to write college essays. A good starting point: students and parents can see a wide sample of essays and the admission decision outcomes.
    A great guide and an invaluable source to students applying to prestige schools. Provides some outstanding ideas and hopefully things to write and not write. A must if one is applying to the top or second tier schools in the country.

  • ok

  • Fiske is always tops. This essay guide pro ides a great selectiion of examples. Some would work well wi the new Common App essays promots, ans we will use this book as a reference for our students.

  • I needed this book and it was very handy. It helped me with my school project and it came just in time.

  • I liked it very much. This is a book that should be given to read to junior students. It will help them greatly..
