I have read dozens of “how to” college essay books over the years and some are good while others are not. The only one that I consistently would recommend was “On Writing the College Application Essay” by Harry Bauld.Â I now have another book to recommend in The Basics for Writing College Application Essays.
I had been planning to write a post about how to write college application essays.Â I have just abandoned that idea because of a recent e-book I was sent to review. The book is entitled “The Basics for Writing College Application Essays: Simple How-to Steps for Writing All College Essays from the Personal Statement to the Short Activity Essay, ” by Jan Rideout.
