1001 things every college student needs to know Apr 14, 2010
I purchased this book at a gift store a few years ago for my son. After reading it, I realized the book was packed full of wisdom. It is written with a sense of humor that teenagers understand. I now order the book in multiples of 10 or more and give out to kids that are juniors. It helps to steer their thoughts toward what college is all about. I highly recommend this book.
must have tome! Dec 6, 2009
My advice: get this wonderful book for your high school freshman...the tips will help her make the most of what her high school has to offer and be an attractive candidate colleges pursue. My only caveat is #6 on pg. 12 I think those scores are way too low to gain admission to top schools.
Great book for the money! Nov 30, 2009
I bought this book for a cousin who will be starting college soon. This was perfect.
Excellent Book with Practical Advice! Oct 11, 2009
This book offers very sound and well-thought-out advice! You can open this book to any page and learn important points that will help any student in college. I didn't find anything in this book which made me feel that the advice was simply the author's point-of-view. And if it is, this is a very knowledgeable man whose words ring true. This is a great book for anybody about to enter college, someone who is already in college or any parent. I have read this book from cover to cover, as well as "1001 Things Every Teen Should Know Before They Leave Home". Both are excellent and would make great gifts for any teenager or parent. Buy the book and decide for yourself.
Most Excellent Sep 1, 2009
"1001 Things Every College Student Needs to Know" is an excellent book for a gift to a HS senior even before they have graduated. I got a copy for my son and for many of his friends as Christmas gifts. So glad those folks who do not like the book have looked at it. The book has good and innocent humor and what teenager doesn't need a bit of innocent humor in their lives. Thank you for reading my review.
