5.0 out of 5 stars Concise and Informative Guide Nov. 2 2011
By Samuel - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is nice as it breaks up the important aspects of college life into well organized chapters. I really wish I read this book back when I went to college as it could have helped me make better decisions in life. It is an excellent quick-reference guide for a broad overview of college, perfect for an incoming freshman to college with anxieties and worries.

The ideal reader, the incoming college freshman, would benefit greatly from reading and taking into heart the advice written inside this book. As it offers a broad scope of a variety of topics, it provides freedom and discovery for new students to explore and engage in activities beneficial to a decent college experience.

As this book doesn't dwell int oo much detail about any one given topic, it is relatively fast-paced which helps with some of the more boring sections. But do realize that every page offers good advice, so even after you initially finish this book it still serves as an excellent reference guide to reinforce good study habits during the college years and beyond.
