College Rules. Such a good pun.
College Rules systematically lays out various strategies for surviving college. I requested this book from Blogging for Books because I have recently graduated and feel that I have some expertise in this area. My opinion afterward: it’s an okay book.
I would recommend reading particular chapters as they apply to your life because reading this book straight through is kind of boring. Of course, you also have to remember that not everything will apply to every college or person.
My one complaint about this book is that they don’t give enough credit to the power of friends. My college experience was enhanced by good friends and useful acquaintances. The authors do direct students to professionals and faculty, but they don’t recommend getting information from friends. Sometimes friends and dorms are the best places to find answers.
Soon to be college students could benefit from reading this book, but current college students and even some adults could benefit from reading the chapters on time management and other chapters.
“I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.”
