    A reviewer

    I purchased 4 of these books for graduating high school seniors. As I gave each one out, I made sure that the parents knew what great advice there was and to make sure their student read through it. Very useful info on studying and just good advice for anyone interested in going back to school.

    Advice i wish i had before college.

    An easy read for any student. Really great advice and balanced. It has a few pages about sprituality that I found to be tasteful and helpful. I was that low income poverty stricken student that did not have a clue and some how made it. This book would have been great for someone like me.

    I purchased this for my college bound daughter thinking it would be either full of great tips or funny. Unfortunately, she was totally insulted by the book and asked me to return in. WOW. So, I read a little more into the book and had to agree. I would not recommend this book to anyone.
