The book can be picked up and read at any time, as it's not really one you need to read in chronological order. Being made up of lists of tips, tricks, facts and myth dispelling knowledge, this book is really more of a reference book than anything else.

This is a down-to-Earth and easy to read guide covering the entire college experience. Exaggerated humor is occasionally used effectively to illustrate certain points. This is a second edition and covers community colleges, engineering schools and art schools along with on-line courses and tips, all these additions to the original book.

With all of the applications and acceptances, everyone is buzzed with what their future school will be like. This is a short basic college guide that gives some good tips along with some what to expects for incoming freshman. There are several references that are easily bookmarked for later use.

This book does have a lot of solid information, but everything is arrange in Top 10 (or 11 or 12 or 13) lists, which makes it seem quite scattered and not cohesive.
