This book as a whole is great and has a good amount of advice. However, some of the advice does not align with my morals and beliefs. There is a whole chapter on drinking and partying (which I almost skipped, but didn't for the sake of a fair review). I would still encourage anyone just starting out in college to read it. While this is more sophomore year, it is my first year away from home so a lot of the advice applied. A good choice to pick up!
Got this book for my high school graduation but didn't actually read it till after my sophomore year. But Ieverything I read I had either seen happen or had happened to me at school, I know this book is good. It gives very good advice and gives you an idea of what college is gonna be like before you get there. I highly recommend reading it before you go off to college.
Definitely a great book to read before starting college. Each page was filled with comments and advices from a variety of people who have already gone through freshman year. There are plenty of stories, including some that will make you laugh. I enjoyed many of them and found some very useful. The format of the book was easy to read, which made it a quick read.
