What made this book stand out from other college advice books was the fact that the advice came from college students themselves, the so called experts in the field. The advice was solid and covered a broad range of topics including what to bring with you to college, freshman orientation, the do's and don'ts of picking out a schedule, financial matters, and even how to do laundry. Above all else, this was a very easy and entertaining book to read.
