Editorial Reviews

?[T]he book succeeds in defining the information necessary to be a real professional in admissions....This book nicely lays out the history of admissions, the code of ethics to which we adhere, and much of the body of information that must be mastered. It also provides an opportunity for professionals to compare their mastery of information and skills to those required for success and advancement in the profession. In these ways, the Handbook for the College Admissions Professionals is an effective tool for those it was conceived to serve.??Journal of College Student Development
