Setting the Records Straight - Feedback from a Stranger

Imagine my surprise!  Sometimes I get a review from someone when I'm expecting it, but this time I read a review of my book that came as a surprise.  And she liked it!  Here is what she said:

I recently purchased Lee Binz's book, "Setting the Records Straight: How to Craft Homeschool Transcripts and Course Descriptions for College Admissions and Scholarships". My homeschooled son is now taking high school level classes and I'm developing his portfolio and transcript. This book is extremely helpful. It combines all the online information I've found into one book. It also contains a lot of Lee's knowledge from her website and consulting service. The price is completely worth it. The print is visually stunning with different type-faces and fonts, side bars, sample transcripts and course reports, and more. This is a book every parent-teacher of a homeschooled high schooler should have if the student is college bound.

Setting the Records Straight by Lee Binz is for those homeschooling high school, or planning to do so. The subtitle is "How to Craft Homeschool Transcripts and Course Descriptions for College Admissions and Scholarships". That pretty much sums up the content. Lee has "been there done that" at educating high schoolers to college and getting them into high-ranking schools.

My favorite part is where she gives me five starts for "Fun Factor"!!  I really do try to make it sound as easy as possible.

Sometimes parents ask me "Is it time for me to make my transcript, or should I wait?"  If you have a high school student, this is the BEST time to write your transcript. If you wait, you could get into a panicky situation when the transcript is needed "tomorrow" because of insurance or summer camp or scholarship opportunity.  Whether your child is a freshman or senior, make your transcript now. Really... even if you don't buy anything from me, start the transcript now and life will be SO much easier later! I promise!
