Summary

In a guide to college life that is a little more realistic than Felicity and a little more fun than Stanley Kaplan, Jennifer Hanson charts a course through the dips and bends of freshman year. Written with the collective "wisdom" of twelve college students from across the country, THE REAL FRESHMAN HANDBOOK is the only one of its kind - a "handy and humorous book that will fit in any first-year's backpack" (Harvard University Gazette) and that offers an inside look at the real deal on college life from those who have been there - and survived. Hanson gives readers a crash course in avoiding freshman year follies, from filling out roommate questionnaires and evaluating putative hangover remedies to writing papers and studying for exams.
College-bound students will relish the down-to-earth advice, and parents can rest assured that they won't have to fund a new wardrobe because Junior didn't separate the colors from the whites. The advice throughout is insightful, smart, practical, entertaining, proving that "Hanson has really done her homework" (U Magazine).
