This collaboration between professor and student presents brief informational essays for the college-bound high school graduate. Topics include how to stay awake in class, how to overcome procrastination, how to interact with professors and other academic personnel, and various aspects of social life like drugs, dating, and living with a roommate. A section on writing a term paper uses a case study that subtly gives good advice. A definitive table of contents helps in finding areas of specific interest quickly. The glossary is excellent for students with little previous contact with academic life. Recommended.-- A.R. Huggins, Mem phis State Univ. Libs., Tenn.
