Fiske Guide to Colleges 1999: The: The Highest-Rated Guide to the Best and Most Interesting Colleges in America (15th ed) by Edward B. Fiske



For seventeen years, The Fiske Guide to Colleges has been the indispensable source of information for hundreds of thousands of students and their parents. Candid, lively, and reliable, it speaks with unique authority, covering everything from where a school's history department ranks academically to where its basketball team ranks nationally, from which dining halls should be avoided to which professors shouldn't be missed. The result is -- as USA Today wrote -- the "most readable and informative" of all the college guides published. Based on surveys of thousands of students and administrators and thoroughly revised and updated every year, The Fiske Guide to Colleges answers the questions on the minds of all guidance counselors, prospective students, and parents. Included are:
-- application information -- where to get one, which schools have the longest and most difficult applications, deadlines, etc.
-- quality-of-life, academic, and social-life ratings for each school -- "party school" or "monastery"?
-- listings of each college's strongest departments and majors

Plus there's Fiske's exclusive selection of the forty-two schools that constitute 1999's "Best Buys" -- schools that deliver the best education at the most reasonable cost.

Some college guides offer merely pages of statistics, others just student opinions, and still others only the opinions of education experts. But The Fiske Guide to Colleges combines all three, so you get the full picture. It's the one authoritative book that college-bound students and their parents shouldn't be without.
