I read this book in one sitting following one of my many I-have-no-idea-what-I'm-doing panics (a regular occurrence for this ambitious psych major). Setting aside some pretty lame jokes and an embarrassing typo or two (check out page 131 for a laugh), this book is dense with helpful advice in an easy-to-read format. I expect to periodically re-read some chapters throughout the rest of my academic journey and am glad to have it on my bookshelf. I suspect many psych majors will feel the same way.

Though some of the advice was too common sense, there were definitely a lot of helpful ones which I wish I had received upon beginning my Freshman year. One of my cousins will be starting college with a major in psychology soon, so I will make sure I give her this book (and that she actually reads it!

I read this book in about a day. Very useful tools and knowledge for those who haven't taken PSY 2010 yet, but great even if you have taken PSY 2010. I feel more prepared and confident with my academic and career goals!
