This book is so precise and informative! Even the most experienced parent can stand to learn something that WAS  overlooked.Even though this book was a reality checkfor some of us,it will be an awesome read at first for some of use less experienced at sending a child to college. However, it is a definite assesing tool,as I found it to be " Guidance in detail"... I truly enjoyed the read, Dr. Klaw !
