Here is our recommendation for sites and books that everyone going through the college search process should be aware of. Many of these sites have tools that are indispensable for the search, and they'll give you plenty of information to help you conduct your own research. It's important to find a combination of sites that work for you, because no one site will have all of the information you need. Mix and match the facts you get from each to get a real picture of what it will be like to attend a specific university.
