This is such a funny book and even though things are said in a humorous way, most of what is said is true. I have laughed out loud several times while reading this book. But besides being so funny it also has a lot of useful stuff in it. There are a lot of tips in it like what is important to pack for moving to a dorm, some quick and easy recipes for those that don't cook, the fastest, neatest way to fold a shirt. What can be better than a book that makes you laugh AND help you out? Anyone that is in, has been in, or is planning to go to college will love it. This book is great!

One thing that I enjoy about CollegeHumor.com is the quality of writing. It seems to be consistently written by very smart people. This book is no exception - it was really funny and well written.

Finally an answer to all those phony and irrelevant inspirational books how your mom/aunt/neighbor likes to load you down with as you prepare to leave for college, namely: "Oh! The Places You Will Go!" "College 101: Surviving Freshmen Year" or "The Bible." Well, "The CollegeHumor Guide..." takes a very irrevrent and exciting look at college life and would certainly make any incoming freshmen reader the toast of his/her hall. It's full of college pranks, stories, etc. to get your buddy excited for the next step or reminiscient of his or her glory days.

I am a college student and figured that most of College Humor's book would be filled with vulgar, "irrelevant" nonsense. To my delight, it was, but it also had pictures to match! In all seriousness though, I was incredibly impressed not only by the book's hilarity but also by the validity and usefulness of all the information presented...Calculating how long you have to actually hang out with your "orientation friends"?!the "turkey dump"!?... BRILLIANT...It truly is the guide to college for our generation. I would have loved to have read it before college, but it's almost better to read now simply because you can laugh out loud at how dead-on the entire book really is. The only gift college bound grads should be getting this June.....Well written, truthful and hilarious...

Yeah, it's been five years but these guys captured the essence of college like no other. Me and my fiance were reading parts of this book back and forth to each other and dying of laughter. From dorm room hilarity to making friends (and dumping them 2 weeks later) this book is as funny and smart as it is honest. I already have 2 high school grads that are getting this as their gift. I cannot recommend it more highly...

If you're going to college, in college, out of college, thought about going to college, driven past a college, dated someone who once saw a college, or just like movies ABOUT College, the CollegeHumor Guide to college is the best book you can buy, to fully grasp the College experience......

it's not so much a book about college (yeah, the focus IS college, but many lessons apply to life after college as well), as it is a survival guide for your 20s, but it's a fantastic, and genuinely humorous read......the lessons are numerous, and not dry in any way, it's realistic about the real-life college experience (Alcohol, drugs, skanky hookups, friends, frats, beer, etc.)

well worth the price (tho, I did get it for 30% off), if you see a copy, steal it (unless it's mine), buy it, or flip through it at the bookstore/library (THEN steal it), but READ THIS BOOK!

yes, I fully realize in three paragraphs, I used the word "College" fourteen times......

I don't know what everybody is complaining about.....aside from the drug use, and the fact that I was a 'GDI', my college experience was quite similar to this......

WHY?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! BECAUSE ALL OF THIS IS SOOOOOO TRUE!!!!! Simply an amazing book that EVERY student should read.
