Good book for all persective college students May 13, 2008
I really enjoyed this book and found it very informative and helpful. With a wife planning on attending Northern Illinois University I especially liked the section on guns at school.
I recommend this book for any student planning on attending college or a parent of someone who will attend. This book is very easy reading and I liked the author's tips.
Giving as my standard high school grad gift Apr 26, 2008
I am planning to give this book as my standard HS graduation gift. What I liked about the book was the ease of reading about the various topics of interest (and importance) to college students. Even thought HS students think they know it all, there was information here that I think they will find not only to be new and informative, but also a reminder of what could happen and how to be prepared. I did not find it preachy or judgemental, but a good resource of what to expect. I highly recommend the book.
