When it first appeared USA Today called this book "the guide that doesn't follow a textbook approach to college life." The Best 310 Colleges is based on The Princeton Review's student surveys--the largest campus surveys in the nation. More than 59,000 students answer questions on everything from academics to campus life. Topics include: the quality of teaching, dorms and dining hall fare, campus politics (left or right and conservative or liberal), whether the student body is diverse or homogeneous, tolerant or intolerant (of race/class relations and of gay students), and high or low in its use of beer, liquor, and marijuana. In fact this book has caused schools across the country to change their food, campuses and drinking policies. Also included is information concerning admission and financial aid policies, student body demographics, average recentered SAT scores and "What's Hot/What's Not" as well as the Counselor-O-Matic, an easy-to-use (if highly unscientific) guide to your chances of getting into each of the top 310 colleges by calculating your "desirability rating" and comparing it to each school's "selectivity rating." Here's a sampling of what students have to say: "This school is filled with wealthy, well-dressed egomaniacs who are about as socially conscious as Marie Antoinette." "I'm premed and there's no place I would rather be. The academics are a killer, no joke, but for those few who survive, the world is their oyster." "If you're not Caucasian, the adjustment here is tremendous." "Since this is a Jesuit institution, not all viewpoints get expressed, particularly liberal ones about gays and premarital sex." "You have to be smart about whereyou go at night." "The food here is really bad; it's either bland or sickening. You're lucky if they don't screw up the bread." "Socially, the surrounding area is so dead that the Denny's closes at night." "Girls over 5'8" watch out--for some reason, guys here have munchkin blood in them or something."

Airpower Advantage

American air power is a dominant force in today's world. Its ascendancy, evolving in the half century since the end of World War II, became evident during the first Gulf War. Although a great deal has been written about military operations in Desert Shield and Desert Storm, this deeply researched volume by Dr. Diane Putney probes the little-known story of how the Gulf War air campaign plan came to fruition. Based on archival documentation and interviews with USAF planners, this work takes the reader into the planning cells where the difficult work of building an air campaign plan was accomplished on an around-the-clock basis. The tension among air planners is palpable as Dr. Putney traces the incremental progress and friction along the way. The author places the complexities of the planning process within the context of coalition objectives. All the major players are here: President George H. W. Bush, General H. Norman Schwarzkopf, General Colin Powell, General Chuck Horner, and Secretary of Defense Richard Cheney. The air planning process generated much debate and friction, but resulted in great success-a 43-day conflict with minimum casualties. Dr. Putney's rendering of this behind-the-scenes evolution of the planning process, in its complexity and even suspense, provides a fascinating window into how wars are planned and fought today and what might be the implications for the future.

PWN is back, and better than ever. The PWN the SAT Math Guide was created to help ambitious, highly motivated kids maximize their SAT math scores. Do you crave a higher score? Are you willing to do a little hard work to achieve it? Good. I knew I liked you. Read this book from beginning to end, with a pencil in hand and a calculator and an Official SAT Study Guide by your side. When you’re done, you’ll be able to approach the SAT with confidence—very few questions will surprise you, and even fewer will be able to withstand your withering attacks. Stand tall, intrepid student. Destiny awaits. Updated for the New SAT This new edition of the Math Guide has been updated, rather painstakingly, to reflect the realities of the new SAT coming March 2016. This book was not rushed to market to take advantage of interest in the new exam. I took my time, and hopefully I got it right. Chapters are broken into five major sections: Techniques, Heart of Algebra, Passport to Advanced Math, Problem Solving and Data Analysis, and Additional Topics in Math. Each chapter concludes with a reference list of similar questions from official practice tests. Practice questions are designated as either “Calculator” or “No calculator.” Students will be forbidden from using their calculators for one whole section of the new SAT. Emphasis is placed on nimbleness—the ability to approach problems in multiple ways to find the one that works best. Calculator solutions and shortcuts are provided where appropriate. Join me online Readers of this book are encouraged to register as Math Guide Owners at the PWN the SAT website. There will be video solutions and other bonus content there. Signing up there will also give me a way to get in touch with you if I make book updates. See details at
