How to Survive Your Freshman Year (Hundreds of Heads Survival Guides)I graduated from college twenty six years ago but I can still remember my first day. I was only sixteen when I started college and I just started to drive. If I  had read the book, How to Survive Your Freshman Year (Hundreds of Heads Survival Guides) my life would have been easier. Although I never went away to college (I lived 2 miles away), I still remember being scared to death. Most of my friends went away to school and I had to make new friends. The professors were not as forgiving if you missed an assignment and I learned that quickly in my freshman year. This is a survival guide and includes tips from hundreds of college students who went through the transition. It covers topics such as freshman orientation, laundry, what to pack, dorm life, money, dating, parties and how to balance studying with sleeping. I remember staying up till three in the morning cramming for a big test. I was tired the whole day. The book contains little snippets of advice that can make a difference in your college life. Some of the advice given all of us could benefit from and there was some that could get you into trouble like getting a fake ID to get into the hip parties. I understand that all college students will experiment with different things and you cannot be with them all their lives to help them. sometimes they have to figure it out on their own. Hopefully the book will help them along.

"The workload in college is like shoveling snow. If you do a little bit every day, you'll get by. If you wait until everything piles up, it becomes a impossible task."

I have to admit; I have let things pile up and the advice given in the book can make your life just a little bit easier. If you know someone going to college in the fall get them a copy of this great book. They will love you for it.
The website is loaded with information about personal health, family and home and other useful topics. Check it out.

Disclaimer: I received a free copy of the book by The Cadence Group for my honest review. I was not compensated for my review.
