In 1966, Peterson's published our first book — the Graduate Guide book. Since then we have expanded our guides to include undergraduate guides, high school guides, finance guides, and admissions guides. Since our founding, Peterson's has remained the most trusted source for educational information. Our titles will help you find the school or career that makes sense for you, while at the same time providing you with the tools and resources needed to gain access to the school or career of your choice.
