We got a copy of this book after a frustrating college admissions meeting. I am impressed (and relieved), not only with how well it is laid out, but also by the sheer scope of material covered. There are so many pieces to the puzzle that need to be aligned exactly right, which is daunting. But the good news is if you follow the book correctly, your kid really stands an excellent shot at getting into a UC. I swear – almost any 10 random pages are worth the price.
