What families are saying:

"I bought Transcripts Made Easy and started filling in the transcript three years ago for our oldest son. He is a senior this year, and I just sent the first transcript to a college. The lady in the admissions office called about some other information today and said she wished all homeschooling parents had it together like me. She really liked the transcript, she said she couldn't do that on her computer. I told her about your book and how great it was in guiding me through the process. I always tell people about your book because it cuts right to the chase. I have [another book] and all the info is great, but your book puts it all together on one paper." — Ann & Dave, Colonial Heights, VA
