The MFA Handbook's latest review on Amazon is three stars (we're holding at four and a half overall) and the writer makes a number of good points. The most interesting to me: "If you have a good professor or can talk to some folks who've done this, i'd save your money."
I wholeheartedly agree. If you know people in-the-know, then allow them to be your guide. If not, then do consider The MFA Handbook, as well as Amy Holman's Insider's Guide.
And if you've read either of these books, I know I'd -- and I'm sure Amy -- would appreciate your comments on Amazon, BN.com, or Powell's. Your insights will be helpful to future readers. Thanks in advance.
