    2nd Edition
    Julia Johnston and Mary Kay Shanley - All books by this author

    Many parents found this book’s previous edition perfect for giving to their college-bound sons and daughters. They recognized it as a reliable source of solid advice, served up in an easy-to-read style. The new second edition has been updated and expanded with more advice and information than ever. One of the authors’ most important nuggets of advice is, “Don’t think of college as a party place away from home; think of it as the place where you get ready for the rest of your life.” They go on to advise students on how to cope with that less-than-perfect roommate, balance time between study, work, and leisure, beat test deadlines, handle heavy course loads, and much more. Every chapter in this book rings with authenticity, and includes quotations from students who have been there, done that, and have come through with flying colors. Cartoon-style line art.
