Edward B. Fiske served for 17 years as Education Editor of The New York Times, during which time he realized that college-bound students and their families needed better information on which to base their educational choices. He wrote the bestselling annual, The Fiske Guide to Colleges, to help them.

Bruce G. Hammond was editor in chief of The Insider's Guide to the Colleges and was managing editor of four editions of The Fiske Guide to Colleges. He is the author of Discounts and Deals at the Nation's 360 Best Colleges and is the school and college expert at Parent Soup, a division of iVillage.com.

Book News Annotation:

Fiske, former Education Editor of the New York Times, has teamed with Hammond (college counseling, Sandia Preparatory School) to provide this student guide on getting into the "right" college. The authors cover the basic steps for finding a suitable higher learning institution such as writing effective introductory essays, using the Internet for the application process, interviewing successfully and qualifying for financial aid. This book is especially helpful for students who are not sure about their academic future and need to decide on an appropriate college in a short amount of time.
