Recommended to Sarah by: Sonlight
This is a great resource for homeschoolers looking to go to college in only a few more years. It gives a ton of information about how to go about preparing for college, what resources are available for homeschoolers, and also some tips and tricks for saving money and making things easier. However in some ways this book is a bit outdated (at least the edition I used). It made it seem like homeschoolers have to work very hard to convince colleges that homeschoolers are worth accepting. While I'm s ...more

Great for a nervous parent!Part One focuses on setting goals, next comes paper trails, and last is the admission office. I read it because my daughter, age 12, is doing high school level work and I wasn't sure what to do. So according to the author, I could claim it for her high school transcript.

I read/scanned this book because Mom borrowed it from the library and because I wanted to see if there was anything I could use for my own going-to-college journey.

As it's about 13 years old, I'm certain some of the information is out-dated. What I liked about it was the way it suggested writing transcripts and making plans. Out of the whole book, that is what I will be using most, as I can't turn back time to go to eighth grade all over again.

Advice on how to administer & record high school to improve chances of college admittance. Includes frequent examples and extra resources at the end of each chapter. I can see it being very helpful. It was clear and gave options instead of just saying "this is the way."
Catherine
Wonderful book. A MUST buy for all homeschooling parents of teens who plan to go to college. The portfolio section alone was worth the price of the book.
Sarah
Surveying ahead with High School in mind, but this one is more basic than what I was looking for.
