Overview


College students will welcome this book's light, conversational approach and its need-to-know advice that could spell the difference between success and failure in their academic and social lives. The authors have integrated practical input from currently enrolled college students across the country in their discussion of virtually every facet of college life. Incoming freshmen, for whom the college experience is entirely new, will find this book required reading--but sophomores, juniors, and seniors will also find good advice about study abroad, money management, choosing a major, and more. For starters, incoming freshmen should know what to bring with them from home and--just as important-- what not to bring. Confusion often runs amok during that first semester, whether on a nearby or a far-from-home campus, and for some students, the situation is further complicated by bouts of homesickness. Here are commonsense tips, lists, and stories for dealing with that problem, as well as advice on coping with troublesome roommates, balancing study, work, and play hours, maintaining a healthful diet, hooking up and hanging out, avoiding excessive alcohol, shunning all contact with illicit drugs, finding the best professors, and handling heavy course loads. Every chapter in this book rings with authenticity and includes direct quotations from students who have already been there, done that, and have come through with flying colors. This must-read title is enhanced with amusing cartoon-style line art.

    Best Book For first year students

    This book was spectacular. After reading this book I felt there as no need to buy another because it covered everything in great detail. The book was wonderful and very helpful. I would recommend this book to any High School or first year college student

    A reviewer

    I recieved this book as a Christmas gift, and I must say it is one of my favorites! As a Senior in high school, college is quickly appraoching and it is so stressful. There are so many questions that counselors, or brochures just don't answer, and what could be better than having people who are currently in college?
