2.0 out of 5 stars index section does not reference the correct pages Feb. 2 2014
By Tim Leahey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My primary complaint is the index section does not reference the correct pages making it necessary for me to hunt through the book. A college of interest to me is referenced in the state index but when I go to the reference page, it has information about another college. I tried using the index to find other colleges with similar results.

I am sure this must be a great book but I plan to return it. Perhaps mine has known printing errors?

Very frustrating.

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful in Defining Value and Identifying Appropriate Colleges March 27 2013
By John - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
College costs are extremely important. However, we often look at tuition and assume that a college with a lower cost will be more economical than a college with a much higher tuition. This book shows that this is not necessarily true and identifies colleges that are good values. Because of this unique approach and other information in the book such as the difference in acceptance rates between Early Admission and regular candidates, I found this book very useful.

So much information to sort through!I'm glad we're researching all this while our son is still a junior in high school. The information in this book is quite helpful. But the index at the back is all off on the page numbers. If you know the alphabet, you can still find the school you're looking for, as they are listed alphabetically.
5.0 out of 5 stars Important Information Feb. 22 2014
By Mother of Two - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Used as a starting point for every college search to help you sort through the Best Values. Ten are listed as best values because they are free. Others because of the bang for your buck like Harvard and Princeton. The two that my boys are interested in were there as was the information I was looking for.
