One of the most down-to-earth, practical, useful, and economic guides on the market today. This book is packed with information and is very easy to use and navigate. Read it straight through or find answers to your questions quickly and with ease. Williamson speaks directly to today's college student in a serious, but fun-loving and humerous way. You'll love this book! If you buy just one book on study abroad, this should be it. Don't study abroad without it. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Sudy Abroad 101 is great for anyone, but especially for high School and college students. Wendy Williamson covers all aspects of preparing and planning a trip abroad. She combines her own Peace Corps experience and her professional expertise as a study abroad advisor to provide useful information that is an adventure in itself. Study Abroad 101 is straightforward, fun, and easy to read. Parents, it would be a very useful gift to give this book to a young person interested in traveling or studying abroad.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was helpful - wish I had bought it earlier in the game - I would recommend buying it 3 to 6 months before you or your student goes abroad. It helped me getting my son ready and would be helpful for someone looking for a program - our college already had a program in place. Since my son is over there, the only thing they didn't tell us was that it is unbelievably expensive.
