Excellent Guide for College Students

I can't say enough good things about this title. Most other college books are either wimpy 'survival' guides, or handbooks full of little cute tid-bits about college life. Give me a break! For $30,000 a year, I hope to do a little more than just survive. And as much as ...
I can't say enough good things about this title. Most other college books are either wimpy 'survival' guides, or handbooks full of little cute tid-bits about college life. Give me a break! For $30,000 a year, I hope to do a little more than just survive. And as much as I appreciate the cute handbooks, I'm 19 years old -- I don't need a book to figure out what a fraternity is or how to decorate my dorm room. I loved this book because it deals with the specifics of how to SUCCEED, not SURVIVE, at college. It is based on interviews with real successful college students, and the advice is powerful. Inspiring stuff. From how to time manage, to how to study, to how to excel beyond classes. It actually treats the reader like an adult -- a rarity among these books. My advice: forget the fluffy survival stuff, this book should be *required* reading for all college students.

okay, but not great

The explanations are way too short and generic. Make sure you browse through the book before buying it. If it's your senior summer, spend it having fun and worry about this later.
