Excellent Help for Parents of Homeschoolers  Jan 1, 2007
I have a 13 year old who will begin 7th grade next year, so I purchased this book in addition to Homeschooling : The Teen Years. This book was a great help to me and I'm sure I will refer to it many times over the next few years.

I had been considered a correspondence school or diploma-granting private school for my son's high school course work when I purchased this book. By reading the material given by parents whose children had attended college, seeing the different transcript types, and learning of various ways to earn college credit, I changed my mind about the correspondence school. I will continue with the current plan and create my son's needed transcripts and portfolio together with him so that he may attend the college of his choice when the time comes.

I especially liked the checklist at the end of the book. I was confused over when my son would need to take the PSAT and SAT and when to actually apply to college and for financial aid. Based on this book, my son will begin his foreign language courses when he begins 7th grade and is planning to look into a local 4-H group in order to build group and leadership skills and possibly earn a scholarship.
 
Not Much Help  Jun 10, 2003
I am an actual homeschooling kid in junior high, and of course, I want to make sure I get into a good college. I bought this book thinking that it would help, but it doesn't. A lot of the book isn't even about college - it's about alternatives to college. I also noticed that the author repeated the same information a lot, so the book really isn't as long as it seems. The people in the book who gave comments were generally Christian homeschoolers from southern states, and many of their children didn't even go on to college. If they did, it was generally only to community college. There were very few comments made by representatives of colleges. When they did make comments, they were very brief, and the colleges, like the homeschoolers, seemed to be southern and Christian. This book isn't very helpful at all, in my opinion. I think that most homeschoolers would be better off using different books to plan for college.
 
LOVED IT  Jan 8, 2001
All students homeschooled or institutionally educated should read and heed Cafi Cohen's Homeschoolers' College Admissions Handbook. It's fascinating. (Without obvious intent this book makes a strong case for continual lifetime learning.) It is an exceptionally well-annotated reference work. It more than adequately addresses the doubts homeschooling families have about college admission. The "How we (they) did it" excerpts are inspiring. There are real examples of good admission essays. Transcripts are covered. This handbook is as easy and fun to read as the Reader's Digest.

The benefits of this book begin when the pupil can read. Don't wait for the student to ask, "What about College? The sections of the book on "Paper Trails" and "Putting It All Together" are worth more than the cost of the book. All homeschooling families must have this book in their library
