PREAMBLE

This is a guide actually about everything you will probably experience in college, not what you need to do to get through college. That is the main reason why I am giving this book five stars.

HIGHLIGHTS

This book has quotes on almost every page. I especially favor this because it provides an explicit viewpoint from actual college students. Keep in mind that there is some inappropriate content in this book, but this is something a high school upperclassman (11th or 12th grader) can easily understand is wrong. Showing this to a 7th or 8th grader might carry a risk, though. I did rate Wanda's review unhelpful, because this book doesn't actually promote illegal behavior like getting a fake ID, it only uses a quote to show the reader how dumb the student looks when he/she does that.

Only the minority of college handbooks show you what a lasting impression of four years spent working on earning an academic credential beyond your high school diploma go into this much detail. Most only cover the commonly requested information you can usually find on the internet, such as grades and what not to do in front of a professor. I can see evidence of Hundreds of Heads working tirelessly to author this conglomeration of facts and opinions.

WHAT'S COVERED

For a book with nearly 400 pages measuring six by nine inches, this book will unlikely leave the reader guessing. It is also up to date. Case and point, regardless of whether you meet the drinking age or not, you should not post pictures of yourself drinking at college on Facebook. This is particularly true if it is interfering with your learning experience in any way. The tips are also useful and a little less than obvious, like bringing a George Foreman grill if you like steak and the like, for example.

CONCLUSION

I haven't heard of any other book with comparable hallmarks this one has. Unless you don't want to wait until your child is in high school, don't procrastinate. Get this book.

I loved this book! I am a parent and found it very informative. Lots of tips, both good and bad but the reality is, these things go on. There are tips on drinking and sex, so if that is something you don't want your child to read, this is not the book for you. I found it was an eye opener and was able to talk a bit about it with my son. It also gave him a realistic view of what dorm life will be like. There are many, many other helpful tips in there too and I think it helps start the transition from being at home, to living on your own.

I bought this for my sister who is HS senior this year. She was very nervous about graduating and moving into a dorm. I thought a little insight into the dorm experience would help and this book was the answer. She instantly felt more prepared to go to college. She is still anxious but a little more excited too.

I found this book to be very informative. I gave it to my niece for one of her grad gifts and after she read it I asked her if she liked it, and she said "Yes, but it kind of scared me a little!" Maybe that's a good thing!

A gift. Thanks for providing it.

We bought 2 copies of this book as Christmas gifts. Both my son and his girlfriend are high school seniors this year and they both have already found the books to be useful! A great stocking stuffer!

Suggestions for places on campus for "quickies" is not something I was looking for in a guide to freshman life at college. And there are other references to sex in the "dating" chapter. I bought a number of copies of this book to give as a gift to a group of high school seniors. I will be returning these books - just not comfortable supporting this type of advice to a group of teenagers. I also glanced through other chapters. Each chapter is mostly filled with two sentence advice from "real" college students. The format got old pretty quick. Some of it seemed useful, but much of the advice seemed mundane, stupid or illegal: "Bring a good towel". "Bring a cell phone". "Don't bring a computer, you'll spend too much time at the computer". "When you arrive at school and want to smoke tons of dope....." Really?

This was a gift to a graduating high school senior who needs some words of wisdom from someone other than a step-grandmother!
