The College Guide for Parents, Charles J. Shields, College Board, 1994. Department of Education. Updated: June 18, 2019.
Another very helpful book was You're Gonna Love This College Guide, by Marty Nemko. Although this book is now more than a decade old it is still an invaluable resource for parents and students.

Shields soon found his niche writing nonfiction for middle-and high-school students, and he achieved steady work with several publishers writing short (20,000 word) biographies and histories.
