TESTIMONIALS FROM STUDENTS!
“College Bound has everything! The first place I went was how to figure out what to major in. The links to O*NET and the career and major profiles really helped. Then I used the link to College Navigator to match majors with colleges. Testing, essay ideas, asking for letters of recommendation, and finding money are all important topics to me. There’s so much in this book. No matter what I needed, I found it in College Bound! There’s nothing else like it.”
Jessica - High School Senior – North Carolina
“I learned a lot! College Bound really helped me understand how to figure out exactly what I’ll need to do college-wise until I’m a senior. Even though I’m only a high school Junior, I’m now many steps ahead of others in my grade, and even some older students! In College Bound everything I need is just a click away! It’s awesome!”
Michelle - High School Junior — Connecticut
“College Bound is awesome! I began my search for a college my junior year when I was interested in playing sports at the Division II or III level and Dr. Hand’s book helped a lot. The step-by-step instructions made the process for a student-athlete easy to understand. It also answered all my other questions about visits, the interviews, and the application process. Thanks, Dr. Hand!”

Also the links for financial aid and scholarship information are absolutely essential to families in this financial climate. We are very fortunate to have someone of Dr. Hand’s caliber walking us through this complicated journey!”

“What a wonderful resource for prospective college students of all ages, as well as for parents! If I were planning to go back to school, I would certainly use this tremendous resource. The fact that it is an eBook makes it that much easier to use! For middle school and high school students who are so technologically savvy, this makes sense. There is such an abundance of resources that I truly believe that you could not have written a better title. With College Bound, how can one not get into the college of his/ her choice! Bravo!”
