Format: Paperback
I recieved the first edition of this handy little book upon graduating from high school and read it cover-to-cover in an evening.
The basic format of the book is a collection of quotes from college students giving helpful truisms concerning various areas of the college experience. The editing and format is easy to read and well suited to any incoming freshman or seasoned college student.
As someone who actively helped people find their way in college as a resident assistant, I can't recommend this book enough. It explodes myths that many incoming freshman have, such as: college is one huge party, professors will always be looking over my shoulder like high school, college is solely about academics, mommy and daddy need will take care of getting everything signed, paid for etc.
In short, its a perfect graduation gift.

This books provides honest solid advice. Unlike most so-called college guides, this one was not written by a book mill, but an author who understands the complexities of being a college student. Well done. Bravo! I can't recommend it enough. If I may, I would like to suggest a book to buy in addition to this one:
College 101: The Book Your College Does Not Want You To Read (ISBN: 0966412206)
College 101 may not be as polished as Been There Done That, but it does provide a complete picture of the college experience from a first person point of view, that is brutally honest. It shows the college experience warts and all!
Buy these two books together and you will know everything you need to know about college!

Wow, I'm really glad I read this book... I bought it yesterday and read it in a single night, because all of the information is very engrossing and entertaining... it's really fun to read! It got me very excited for the college experience. I actually feel really bad for any students that don't come across this book, because there's some stuff in there that you would never think of to do... before it's too late! Like scheduling your classes with a map so that you don't have to run from opposite sides of the campus to get to class and a WHOLE lot more. There was so much stuff in there that I wanted to remember, that I went through and hilighted excerpts... which wound up to being about half of the whole book! Buy this book... for yourself, for a friend, for a son or daughter: anyone going to college! They'll thank you for it! I just hope I can find a copy of volume one!

I buy this book every spring as a graduation gift for young friends who are college bound. No heavy reading required, it's full of quick, practical tips and helpful hints from other students who have been there before. I wish I had had something like this when I went off to college years ago. It would have saved the frustration of learning the hard way -- by experience.

This book has more common sense, solid advice, and information than most college guides. A freshman would be well served keeping this book in his/her back pocket.

Of all the the books, advice, and other perils of wisdom that I was given before and during college, this is the one book I wished I would have had. I recently bought this book for my sister who will attending college shortly, and the book was read through from front to back in a matter of a few hours. I have a difficult time concentrating long enough to read, but even I found this book to be insightful and enjoyable. A MUST HAVE!!!!!!!!!!

This book is great. I enjoyed reading it, and found it very interesting. I was thinking a good complement to this book would be, "How to find your dream job and make it a reality: solutions for a rewarding and meaningful career" by Jason McClure. If there I one thing I would have done different in college, it would be preparing for the job search afterwards.
Order both books and make the most of college career. Good luck...

I think this book gives it's readers some great nuggets of truth about truly living your college experience to the fullest. It is practical rather than theoretical and very easy to read.

The freshman year in college is a big deal, a HUGE deal ... it is a transition that few parents and students are prepared for. After working on campus in Student Life for many years I have seen how difficult this transition is first-hand. The Department of Education has shown that more that 1/3 of all new freshman will drop out before making it to their sophomore year and fewer than half of all new freshman will graduate from college.

"Been There, Should've Done That II" gives us some great "real-life" advice on how to weather the storm known as the Freshman Year in college!
