I liked many of those guides, but they were all large and pricey and have only become more so since. A cheat sheet of their virtues could have saved me some time and money, so to help streamline your college search, I've devised a rating system to evaluate which books in today's market offer the most insightful counsel.

The results, from worst to best:

The Insider's Guide to the Colleges
Peterson's Four-Year Colleges
The College Board College Handbook
U.S. News & World Report Ultimate College Guide
Barron's Profiles of American Colleges
Choosing the Right College
Fiske Guide to Colleges
The Unofficial, Biased Guide to the 331 Most Interesting Colleges
The Best 361 Colleges
