College Prep

Are you a high school junior or senior, or the parent of one? Looking for information on colleges? Check out the library's For the College Bound page where we list resources at the library and on the Web that will help you plan, prepare and pay for post-secondary school education.

If you're not even sure where to start, here are some handy planning calendars that spell out what you (or your son/daughter) should be doing depending on the year and month:

If you (or your son/daughter) plan on taking any of the college entrance exams, be sure to log in to Peterson's Testing and Education Reference Center. You'll be able to access online study guides, quizzes and timed practice tests for the SAT and the ACT for free.

Finally, before you get in the car for a road trip to visit prospective schools, you might want to check out YOUniversity.com and watch one of their videos on over 400 colleges. The videos highlight various campus features as well as interviews with current students and faculty/staff. Unfortunately they don't have a video of my alma mater, the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, but hopefully that will be remedied soon.
