Paise for the previous Edition:
"Although most students today utilize the Internet to do much of their college browsing, a guide such at this can be indispensable since it provides in one volume a great deal of useful information that would require visits to many different web sites... this should be an annual purchase for most public, high school, and college libraries.”
Gregory A. Crawford, ARBAonline, American Reference Books Annual 2015
“This well-researched and organized resource is affordable, balanced, clearly written, and easy-to-use. The coverage is more comprehensive and well organized by far than its competitor Peterson’s Four-Year Colleges … This essential guide would be invaluable to high school seniors, counselors, teachers, and anyone looking for up-to-date information including statistical data about colleges and universities, and belongs in every academic, high school, and public library.”

“More than 1600 accredited universities are logged in this fat book, which prides itself on giving readers “as much information as possible” and hardly disappoints.”

"...this book does a much better job of describing the unique characteristics of the 50 plus schools it profiles than almost anything else on the market...The book impressed me. It should impress counselors and it should be very helpful to students seeking to distinguish the life style on campus from one school to another."
