Title is misleading about college admission

I would have given this book a four star review but it seems like the title was chosen to sell more books.This is actually a good book for parents of young adolescent children on best practices for raising children. The title implies that it offers information about college admissions success. The content includes recommendations for parenting values and practices that should be implemented very early in a child's life. If you've purchased this book when your child is 16 or 17 to inform yourself on about how to help your son or daughter apply to colleges, it is for the most part too late to implement the parenting practices recommended.

Knows It All

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Someone who really knows absolutely nothing about parenting.

What was most disappointing about Pamela Donnelly’s story?

There just was not much special information that was worth paying for.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Yes. There was a condescending, stereotypical upper class attitude.

Excellent info for the high school years

What did you love best about 4 Keys to College Admissions Success?

I currently have two children in high school. One is about to graduate. I purchased this to help give me some insight on the whole college process. I have gained so much knowledge through this book I cannot stress how beneficial it has been. Not just on the admissions process but also on how to communicate with your kids through the high school years. How to ask them questions that will help them put more thought into what they are learning and why as well as how to help your child build on their achievements and strengths. Great book!

What did you like best about this story?

I have learned so much. I wish I would of read this type of book during my children's freshman year in high school.

Which scene was your favorite?

The author did a fantastic job presenting what to expect for the admissions process. She also presented great ideas and suggestions to help your children succeed in high school and how to prepare themselves for college as well as their way of thinking.

Any additional comments?
