1.0 out of 5 stars Useless, 24 Mar 2012
Where the description says "primarily consists of information on Wikipedia" this actually means pretty much all the content in the book has been copied and pasted from Wikipedia. Even the layout of some of the facts is exactly the same. Complete waste of money unless you don't have access to the internet, in which case you wouldn't be able to order the book from amazon in the first place and would be much better off.

Really should have given more attention to the product description.

Sadly amazon does not provide the opportunity to rate an item 0/5 stars, though maybe the virtue that this book does, despite all common sense, exist warrants it that 1 star.

This is a great bedside lamp, the light intensity is set on a scale between 1 and 20, with 1 offering a faint glow through to 20 which renders a light so blinding you could read a book in the next room, let alone the one the lamp is in.

University Life: The Essential Guide for Students &hellip by SAGE Publications Ltd
3.0 out of 5 stars Common sense really, 19 Jun 2011
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I'd like to start by saying if you are looking for a light-hearted book with a few jokes thrown in that would offer some guidance for university life, this is probably not the book for you. There is a wealth of information between these pages, however the majority of it is a mix of common-sense and pedantics. However, if you really want to take time out of studying for A-levels to read this painfully dull book, I would only suggest doing so if you have very little clue about how the outside world works. However, as I stated earlier, it does contain a wealth of helpful information, if you can persevere to find it.
