Educational Communications, Inc., Lake Forest, IL.
Fourteen articles are directed to college-bound students regarding student financial aid information, the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT), advanced placement and credit by examination, college selection, types of colleges, choosing a major, and earning power after graduation. Techniques and publications that may help students gather accurate information about financial aid are addressed in "Searching for Student Financial Aids" (S. Norman Feingold and Marie Feingold). Three articles discuss the SAT, its use by colleges, and preparation for the test. "The Use of the SAT at Selective Colleges" (Judith Gatlin) provides perspectives on low/high scores and admissions decisions. "Tips on Taking the SAT" (Ernest W. Beals) recommends becoming familiar with the SAT format, content, and directions; enrolling in preparatory courses; and other strategies. Considerations in choosing a structured program of preparation for the SAT and suggestions for becoming a better test-taker are presented in "Can You Prepare for the SAT?" (Stanley H. Kaplan). Additional articles are: "The Advantages and Pitfalls of Advanced Placement and Credit by Examination for the Freshman Year of College" (Carl D. Lockman); "Tough Questions to Ask Any Admissions Officer" (Robert G. McLendon); "Common Mistakes Students Make in Selecting a College" (William B. Stephens, Jr.); "The Academic and Social Benefits of Large American Universities" (James C. Blackburn); "The Academic and Social Advantages of a Private Church-Related College or University" (A. Mitchell Faulkner); "Choosing the Right College Major" (James E. Moore); "A Yearn to Earn" (Lawrence B. Durham); "Advantages of Attending a State University" (Stanley Z.
