AN INVALUABLE RESOURCE. A designer couldn't begin a project without the input of the client or the tools to make informed decisions. Choosing a design program should be no different. DesignIntelligence provides the tools, evaluations, and insight, to make informed decisions about design programs in the Ninth Annual survey of America's Best Architecture & Design Schools - 2008. For nine years DesignIntelligence has surveyed organizations across the nation to determine which schools produce graduates meeting and exceeding the demands of professional practice. Hiring managers from the nation's top corporations, organizations, municipalities, and design firms evaluate recent new hire graduates for practice readiness in a range of disciplines and skills. * Which programs best prepare students for the rigors of professional practice? * How are design programs meeting emerging needs in the fields? * Who are the most admired design educators? * How do I know which programs are good value for the investment? * How do programs in my area measure up? * Where can my firm recruit top graduates? These questions and more are answered in the pages of the 2008 edition of America's Best Architecture & Design Schools. The only survey of its kind to evaluate programs based on the satisfaction of the profession, the historical survey of programs provides readers a glimpse of the standings for programs over recent years, and the new "Deans Survey" details the programs which design department heads feel are academic models. From Architecture and Landscape Architecture, to Interior Design and Industrial Design, America's Best Architecture and Design Schools 2008 provides students, parents, counselors and industry professionals with targeted and timely information, the tools for an evaluation of the nation's top performing schools and a benchmark for evaluating other programs. School counselors can utilize this guide's facts, figures, and resources to advise students interested in design careers; parents can develop the necessary, in-depth understanding of the complexities of a design education and the profession; and hiring managers can target their recruitment efforts towards top performing programs. Filled with insight and discussions on choosing a school, the 2008 edition of America's Best Architecture & Design Schools builds on a tradition of careful and detailed analysis of trends and best practices in design education based on the overall satisfaction of leading firms and organizations. The 2008 print edition of America's Best Architecture & Design Schools is 96 perfect-bound color pages of charts, graphs, data, and analysis of design programs across the nation that no student, prospective student, school counselor, or hiring manager should be without. Design the best future possible, with the right tools for the job: DesignIntelligence America's Best Architecture & Design Schools - 2008.

My rating is based on what the publisher stated the book would provide, mainly answers to...
* Which programs best prepare students for the rigors of professional practice?
* How are design programs meeting emerging needs in the fields?
* Who are the most admired design educators?
* How do I know which programs are good value for the investment?
* How do programs in my area measure up?
* Where can my firm recruit top graduates?

The book did answer most of these questions to a decent degree (but answers are presented as lists, not analytical paragraphs.)

BUT FIRST - I was surprised at how small the book is (9" x 6.5"). I read through the 95 pages in about 2 hours.

However, the book contains really helpful information for me. I am in the beginning stages of looking for MArch programs. The book contains 4 short essays that let prospective students know about current challenges and future trends in architecture education. Programs reviews are broken down into architecture, landscape architecture, interior design, and industrial design programs.

The survey participants (270 firms and organizations) appear to have answered a broad collection of questions which were analyzed and presented in multiple (and helpful) ways. Ultimately, the data is presented as lists and rankings, but based on the criteria, different schools' strengths are highlighted. Probably the most interesting statistics were the results of the Architect Registration Examination (ARE), where top scoring schools were listed. The test is apparently broken down into 9 sections, and data for each section is listed. The variety in top scoring schools is really interesting.

The information in this book has opened my eyes to programs I would otherwise have not considered (or even known about). Although I read it in 2 hours, I have referred back to it countless times as I explore my options.

Like the other reviewers, I would have liked to see detailed information about each school's focus and philosophy. Although these would naturally change over time, it would help students narrow down what schools to consider.

Is $39 expensive for this book? Yes. But, with the limited information on architecture programs available, this book has been useful.

I was looking for a book that would review the strengths and weaknesses of schools for landscape architecture, and this book did not. It provides a list of the top rated schools for several design-oriented professions, as well as a list of how the schools are ranked by professionals in various geographic regions. The book was marginally helpful, but not what I was looking for. It's fine if you're just looking for a top 15 list, but it doesn't contain much beyond that.
Mr.jeka
The book had lots of good information in it. But I would have liked a little more info about the schools and where exactly they are located.

I ordered this book to get an indepth view on the different graduate schools for Arhictecture. It had 3 lines of text for each school. It was useless and not helpful. This book is a waste of money.
