Simple and very easy to read.
Jennifer
I don't know...The book is kind of small but really thick, so that makes opening it a little harder than a 'normal' sized book.
Courtney L. Lowe
Things Every College Student Needs to Know" is an excellent book for a gift to a HS senior even before they have graduated.

Harrison's focus is different from the usual college advice books in that the focus of his book is on actually GRADUATING college. Harrison quotes the dismal statistics of how many students who start college actually finish within six years. Then he gives advice on how to ensure that you (or your child) is one of those who does finish.

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

This is a remarkably readable book for young people ready to enter college. The advice is concise, but often presented in a humorous fashion. Because it isn't a wordy tome, the book invites readers to read just a little bit more, and the topics covered are important for consideration.

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.

I purchased this book because I'm starting college in a month. It has been extremely helpful and made me think about things I wouldn't have thought about otherwise. It had many good tips about every topic. It helped me learn how to stay focused on my goal, which, of course, is graduating on time. I really recommend this!

Fun to read. Packed full of practical, "real world" advice. As a high School Counselor, this makes the perfect Graduation gift to me to give when invited to grad parties! This book includes everything I want them to know, but probably never had the time to tell them!

Got this for our daughter in prep for heading off to college. We put it in her Christmas stocking, and she has enjoyed it so much, we ordered several more for her friends for gifts when they graduate.

SO many practical tidbits of advice presented in a SUPER reader friendly format!!! Of course, most of us choose to 'live through stuff' rather than take someone's advice. Anyway...I read through different sections on a regular basis. The 1001 Things Every GRADUATE Needs to Know is equally as good. I sent that one as a graduation gift. Our local high schools plan to give them out as prizes throughout the school year and at Project Graduation events.

I thought this book would just be "fluff" reading but I was pleasantly surprised. It tells it like it is. No sugar coating. It is better a student be prepared for the real world than to go in thinking everyday is going to be bliss.
