    What a great resource from college students who've been there!!!!

    College is about a year and a half away for my daughter but just the same I thought I would look into some books for information about the college experience. This book was so informative because it was written mostly by students. The advice about what incoming students should do, not do, or look out for, is information that you won't see on an "official" college website. There are great lists of items that most students need, stories about homesick students, very funny accounts of the worst roommates, and other potentially unsafe situations that students need to be particularly aware of. So after reading this book, I handed it to my daughter. She rolled her eyes when I gave it to her, but after I told her that it has some fantastic information in it, she started reading.... and was soon reluctant to even put it down!

    ¿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. There are chapters about: Money, what to take with you, and social situations. 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. I really cannot stress that enough. I completely agree with the point about not allowing your roommate¿s significant other to sleep over. That only leads to them eventually moving in. This is not necessarily the advice your mother and father would give you. Frat parties, hangovers, and pot smoking is addressed. However, there is a theme of responsibility throughout the book. Perhaps you are a parent who does not want to talk about these parts of college. Give this book to your child! Get this book for your graduate. I recommend this!
