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 was education editor for The New York Times for 17 years; Hammond has edited several guides to colleges. Their guide for college-bound students—and their families—is intended to demystify the processes of identifying the right college, getting accepted, and paying for higher education. In addition to general information describing these processes, the text includes a 60-plus page list of colleges grouped according to type( e.g. elite, best bargains, best-kept secrets, top conservative, top nonconformist).
