"This volume covers most of the major topics that the organizers of effective postsecondary encouragement programs should consider as they develop a comprehensive set of support services for low-income and first-generation students. The authors do an effective job of synthesizing relevant literature and providing practical suggestions regarding the implications of the research for providing support for students and their families ... One of the strengths of this book is that it helps practitioners determine how to spend their most precious resources, time and money, as they work to support students." -- The Journal of Higher Education

"The book is well written and addresses questions of interest for those designing and/or studying college preparatory programs." -- CHOICE

"Limitations in educational funding make measurable outcomes even more critical for outreach programs. The authors' arguments for programs that are based on sound theoretical arguments and effective program outcomes will not go unheeded. This is a valuable text for administrators, counselors, researchers, and faculty members who study or participate in programs to improve the achievement of underrepresented youths." -- Ken Kempner, coeditor of The Social Role of Higher Education: Comparative Perspectives
