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.
