I just know it wouldn't have taken me 20 years to get my Bachelor's degree had I been given this book when I was 18. This is a must-read for anyone headed for college — and wanting to succeed.
Syndicated columnist Harlan Cohen leaves no stone unturned in what has been deemed the #1 Student Handbook. He covers everything from dorm life, Greek life, commuter life, finances, and getting good grades, to sex, drugs, alcohol, and STDs. Each topic includes a ''Harlan Tip,'' accompanied by a true story from a college student.
Not only will you get page after page of tips from students on over 100 college campuses in the U.S., you'll also get the latest facts, stats, and resources having to do with college life, along with advice from Harlan, who has been a freshman twice, visited over 300 college campuses, and interviewed over 1,000 students. Your student won't be able to put the book down because Harlan is hilarious. He had me laughing out loud.
High schools do a great job of getting students into college, but there, few students know what to expect. That's what this book is all about. Because of the adult subject matter, we recommend this book for students 18 years and up.
