New Workbook Gives Students A Jumpstart On College Applications
ROWLEY, MA - March 23, 2004 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- For kids and parents worrying about the college
application process, a new easy-to-use workbook gives students an early start and takes them step-by-step
to success. Published by The NETWORK Inc. (www.thenetworkinc.org), "Check Yourself into College" (ISBN
187823403X) is neither voluminous nor verbose, begins as early as ninth grade, offers comprehensive and
convenient tools, and brings focus and control to the college application process.
Created by two California mothers, Liz Zmich and Penny Adler, frustrated by their own children's
experience, "Check Yourself into College" uses an easy to follow workbook format designed to appeal to
the busy student. The book begins in ninth grade, but can be picked up at any point, even by seniors.
Checklists cover every important topic from the college essay to financial aid.
Zmich, an award-winning mentor teacher and veteran of more than ten years of college counseling and
Adler, a mother who helped her three children and their friends using the book's processes, bring passion
and purpose to helping students struggling with the often overwhelming process of college application.
"Check Yourself into College" can stand on its own or serve as an adjunct to other test prep and college
guides. Its fresh approach, lean text and comprehensive contents make it an indispensable tool for all
students, their parents, school counselors, and admissions officers.
Commenting on the new book, NETWORK President, Dr. David Crandall said, "Here, finally, is a book to help
kids gear up early, proceed steadily, and stay on track. It will also help anxious parents to stay sane
and support their children, knowing that they are progressing on schedule."
