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.
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!
Order both books and make the most of college career. Good luck...
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!

It has good advice in it. It is a compilation of helpful quotes from students. This gives it credibility and authenticity.
