The fresh advice covers topics today's high school students probably haven't though about, and it may surprise them to learn that there are often a variety of ways to address a problem.
The format invites scanning, and that approach will provide insight into issues that weren't encountered at home or in local schools. All the rumors about the freshman fifteen, roommate problems, teachers' expectations, being home sick, making new friends are covered. The advice is to the point and worthy of consideration.
1001 Things Every College Student Needs to Know is a great gift to a grandchild who will soon be attending college.
Orders from Amazon come quickly, and the books are available as needed.
Parents may especially appreciate his blunt advice, such as: "You need to know to not listen to all that nonsense about college being a time of 'personal exploration.' At up to $50,000 a year, it's job training."
-- Phyllis Zimbler Miller
It's not overly "God" centered, so ignore the religion trolls.
