Book Description

Sept. 30 2006
From its predeparture advice to its extensive coverage of daily life issues, this guide covers everything students need to know to adapt quickly to their new life in Paris and get the most out of their experience as an international student and resident. In addition to serving as a complete how-to manual for study abroad—addressing financial, housing, insurance, packing, and visa issues—the guide also serves as a detailed, student-oriented resource for day-to-day living in Paris. Questions such as How should I deal with administrative tasks? How can I use the public transportation system? and Where are the best spots to buy groceries, eat, party, shop, exercise, and visit? are discussed in depth along with hints for making the most out of the opportunity and traveling further into France and Europe. Hundreds of practical reviews, links, and tips designed to make a student’s experience in Paris fun, affordable, and virtually stress-free are also included.

5.0 out of 5 stars An absolute "must-have" Dec 9 2006
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Written by French native Audrey Queyreyre and university Peer Advisor John Chrisman, both of whom have extensive personal experience studying abroad, Study Abroad Paris an in-depth, everything-you-need-to-know guide to getting the most out of studying abroad in France's most famous city. From financial and insurance issues, to which Parisian news and media sources are available in English, to shopping tips, safety advice (including which public transportation lines and city areas are more prone to crime than others), housing recommendations and much more. An absolute "must-have" for anyone seriously contemplating or undertaking the life-transforming experience of studying abroad in Paris, and a valuable resource for Paris tourists of any season.
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Guidebook Very Thorough Dec 6 2006
By Michael Haine - Published on Amazon.com
This is a very useful guidebook and a unique idea for study abroad students. The book is basically divided into three sections: preparing for your trip, living in Paris, traveling Europe and France.

For me the biggest strength is the middle section "once in Paris." It covers basics as you would expect like housing, shopping, taking classes or working, safety, transportation, attractions, places to eat, clubs, tours, etc. However what impressed me was it also covers more specific things like finding a gym, student organizations, grocery stores, cell phones, renting a bicycle, calling home... I would definitely recommend having a copy if you are heading or plan to head to Paris.
4.0 out of 5 stars Study Abroad Paris March 8 2007
By Jane Stanley - Published on Amazon.com
I wanted to give it 4.25 stars. I mean, if you go by the French education system the book would be unable to get a five, because perfection is impossible. It's a pretty good book. It's helpful as a reference for getting to know Paris, especially in the nerve-wracking time upon arrival. It's better than a tourist guide in the sense that it tell you how to live in Paris, rather than what is pretty.
