    ┬┐Great Advice From Those Who Have Already Been There┬┐

    What a great graduation gift! Going to college right out of high school is one of the biggest transitions one can make. This book is filled with practical advice that is given in short blurbs. You can read it in one setting or just a few minutes at a time. The only point that I did not see in this book is that it is wise to not have roommates¿even if you have to spend extra money. Get this book for your graduate. I recommend this!
