    great stuff

    This book is such a strange mixture of ridiculous humor and ideas I actually intend to use. I must admit, I now feel very well prepared for next fall, when I enter college.

    Totally irreverant and unbelievably fun

    I gave this book to my best friend when he was preparing for college. My only hope is that he passed it on to a younger counterpart when he was finished with it (like I did). I love that this book mixes practical advice with witty banter. From how to choose the best dorm mattress to how to ask your parents for money to how to avoid that creepy old guy in the dorm (c'mon, every college has one...or a few), this book is packed full of anecdotes that might not solve your problem, but will at the very least have to laughing about it.
