The book covered all the basic topics but it was very simple. It did not offer me any real advice but simply an overview of the college experience. The book was ugly to read and too simple. If someone has absolutely no idea what to expect in college then this book is a good start but otherwise people should shop for something else. I don't think it worth too much of anyones time or money.

Honestly, as college books go, this one is ok. It really does not tell you * everything* about college. It really is just another book that fills a hole in the publisher's catalog. There is an "Everything" book on almost every topic possible. Would you really want to purchase a book on a specific subject matter from a company that also makes books on such topics as Wine Tastings, and An Art Appreciation?
This book will teach you the basics, nothing more. If you really want your college freshmen to get the meat and potatoes of the experience you would be better served buying them:
* Confessions of a College Freshman: A Survival Guide for Dorm Life, Biology Lab, the Cafeteria, and Other First-Year Adventures
(ISBN: 1589196600)
* College 101: The Books Your College Does Not Want You To Read (ISBN: 0966412206)
These two books, although from two different perspectives, give an honest first person point-of-view of what a college freshman should expect. The emphasis here is on "learn from my mistakes" not "my publisher asked me to write a how-to guide for the college market, since my how-to guide on growing vegetables was so successful"
Besides, College 101 is universally despised by campus bookstore clerks across the country. That has to be a fantastic endorsement! :-)

There is a lot of useful info here. Most of it could probably be found in other places though. The one gripe is there's a lot of stuff that seems to be an ad for something. Also, sections such as the 'amusement park' and 'spring break' ones are basically a list of "What has good name recognition", making no effort to point out places that are actually good. Of course, that is just a small part of this book.

I bought this book a couple of months ago so that I could have something to read about college life and to help me when I get there. This book has everything you need. From directions on doing laundry, to research paper help,to greek life and to spring break tips, this book is a must have for any upcoming college freshman. I truly urge you to buy it!
