Review by: Alex F., American Mensa - November 7, 2018
The most benefit would come from reading this book as a freshman or sophomore in high school so that you have time to plan. Some of the information seems like common sense or something you would find in other college planning books, but the difference is that it addresses the special circumstances that can come up with gifted students and includes resources specifically geared toward this group.
