Easy listen, Good advice

I am the parent of a current Junior. I have read about a dozen books on College entrance. I have this book in both the audio and print version. What I like about the audio is the fact it is very easy to listen to and understand and it is a very quick read. The focus is on the student and advice is given to help students create a package that shows who they really are to the colleges they are applying. The financial aid explanations were concise and clear. The main ideas are stated in each chapter as well which makes this book easy to follow. The readers change with each chapter which helps you keep place in the book and makes it easy to go back and find certain chapters for review. One of the better college handbooks out there.
