Review One:

Christie, Student, GA

I have always struggled on taking tests, and these tips on studying and taking tests are very helpful to me. Also, all my life, people have been telling me that I needed to be "well-rounded" in order to get into a good college, and even in order to do well in life. While I think I have known roughly what that meant and what it entails, it was nice to have the clear definition of "well-rounded" in terms of college applications given to me.

I really liked the way that each lesson was concisely delivered in a way that was easy to understand and apply. I feel that often programs that are supposed to help students to get into college make things seem much more complicated then they need to be, and these lessons made perfect sense and were interesting. I also liked how you shared personal experiences.

Review Two:

D. Hall, Parent, TX

I am a parent of a high school aged child and we're looking to get our child into the very best college or university we can possibly help him get into. I'm the product of a state school and I was looking to get my son into an Ivy League school or another top college but I didn't know how to do it. That's when I found out about Kamala Appel's program. What's really remarkable about Kamala is that she comes from a non-traditional background and yet she was able to get into an Ivy League school, excel in the university system, and later become a recruiter for an Ivy League college. So she knows all about the tips and preparation that I never thought to do when I was applying to college; but now I know for my son. So if you are a parent who's really serious about getting your son or daughter into an Ivy League or another top college, you really need to check out Kamala Appel's book. You will not be sorry.

I would recommend this book because it provides great tips for applying to college. It covers all the different aspects of applying such as common mistakes to avoid, the essay, and the interview. It was very helpful to me while I was completing my applications.
