The book includes practical and insider knowledge that can't be found elsewhere - like how to strategically choose your college to boost your chances of admission, and how to interpret and respond to interview questions in a way that demonstrates your intellectual curiosity and academic potential. You'll find sample personal statements; examples of interview questions for all subjects; practical advice on fees and funding; and how to manage parents and peers.
