This book is a must read for every girl graduating from high school and any young woman currently in college.

I picked up this book as a gift, but I ended up reading it myself before passing it on to the intended recipient. ---
I wish I had this book when starting college. Sometimes when you read a guidebook you expect a lot of superficial, common sense advice. This book goes beyond that - it is superbly written, and the advice is intelligent and thoughtful. It does a great job of addressing issues specifically from a girl's point of view, especially in the dating, health and sorority sections. I think the book gives an accurate picture of what it's like to be a girl in college today. Definitely worth checking out.

It has *some* helpful hints, but I felt that most come from common sense; eat healthy and exercise in order to be fit. Duh?

The writers introduce lots of good topics for advice and discussion, but hardly touch upon them, at least not to the extent that would be truly helpful or likely to be remembered, in my opinion. Of course, for further discussion, as the book reiterates, you can always go to their website to talk to other soon-to-be college students if you have any questions.

Somewhere in the book it says that this guide can be helpful to keep during all four (or more) years of college. I imagine that I'll get more help from actually talking to people for more in-depth help if I need it. All of this is just a basic outline of what to possibly expect in college; meeting new people, joining a club, knowing when to not leave your BFF plastered in some random person's bathroom by herself. You know, all that stuff you couldn't figure out on your own.

On the not so harsh side, it's probably worth a couple of reads, but, for me, it wasn't worth the price. I advised my friend not to buy it herself so that she can just borrow my copy. I advise the same to everyone else - check the library first.

I purchased this for my younger sister. She was more than impressed with everything in it. She loved that it offered up a variety of suggestions and options that she would have never thought of.
It is geared towards college freshman, if you get this as a sophomore or later you have already learned the tricks of the trade the hard way.

The reviews made me buy this. I feel like they aren't talking about this book.

It seems like the authors have no clue about what 99% of girls in college are like. First, they quote a a girl from Spelman College who talks about all the guys on campus. Spelman is a WOMEN's college! One of the main people, Alison Davis, complains that her "world has ended" because she's stuck at Barnard, an Ivy League School. They say twice not to bring your High School Yearbooks. (I'm bringing them, I happen to love my friends, plus it's a great way to introduce yourself to people.) Plus, they write about facebook like no one knows what it is. These are a few examples.

I realized that almost everyone who wrote official and amazon reviews aren't students. Maybe that explains why it's so out-of touch.

If youre a student who wants to know about what college is like, you'll be insulted. I'm not trying to be mean, just honest.

This book covered a range of topics. Not just girly info. Would highly recommend. There is a variety of writers with their own experiences - keeping it real!

Nice read with fun, albiet common sense tips for college girls. Found the little book while wandering a Barnes and Nobles store. I flipped through the book and was able to read it in a couple minutes. I would say its not worth ordering if you can flip through it in a bookstore or borrow it from your library. Save your dollars.

I bought this as an extra grad gift for my daughter and her friends. They loved it but I wished it was the current "2nd" edition.
