I appreciate how simple and straight forward this book is. She provides advice for creating a four-year plan, what colleges expect to see, and options for different situations. The book also has multiple examples of what to include on a transcript and how to format one. This is not the only resource you will need to plan your student's high school years, but it is one you will want to have on your shelf for quick reference!
