College-Prep Homeschooling: Your Complete Guide to Homeschooling through High School by Chandra and PhD David P. Byers
Chandra Byers is a homeschooling mother of six, and David Byers has a Ph.D. in education and teaches education at the college level. Their oldest is now attending college on a scholarship, after having been homeschooled all her life. With their combination of experience and expertise, they show us how parents can continue to homeschool their children through high school in subjects for which they are not experts.

Not only has Dr. Byers helped prepare his own homeschooled children for college, but he has seen first-hand how many homeschooled students have done in college.
