The Latino Student's Guide to College Success , written by Latino education experts, provides solid, up-to-date advice directed specifically to Latinos contemplating, preparing for, or already in the university or community college setting. This volume contains the 8 Steps to College Success, numerous vignettes of notable Latinos in many fields who give their personal story of how they succeeded in college and their advice for today's students, and a directory of top Latino universities and community colleges. Every Latino high school student as well as school counselors and libraries serving the Latino community will welcome this helpful guide.
