Book Description

The guide to university life – by students for students

From the Author

"So, are you excited?" As a soon-to-be-fresher, these were words that I was asked over and over again as I started packing for my new life as a university student. The answer was yes - I was excited to make new friends, to start a new course, to learn to live independently. But I was also pretty nervous. How would I cook for myself every day? What should I pack? Would it be a big jump from A Levels to studying for a degree? Talking to my friends didn't help, since most of them had the same questions - and more. I arrived at my university halls squashed into the car alongside my mum, dad, and everything I thought I could possibly need. Ever. I didn't quite take the kitchen sink, but I did nick most of the contents of that sink. I thought that my college kitchen wouldn't contain so much as a teaspoon. But as it turned out, it was fully equipped and anyhow my room was so tiny that my parents had to return home with half of my belongings. Plus, I'd still managed to forget some vital items. (Boring though they sound, plug extension cables are really, really useful...) One drunken night in my third year at uni, some friends and I started compiling a list of all the things we wish we'd known when we started at university. Like the fact that turning up to library induction in freshers' week might actually have been the most useful hour of the whole of the first year. If only we'd done so.

I bought this book for my daughter who starts Uni this year. There were so many to chosse from so I wasn't sure which would be best. I chose this one as it was written by student and I thought she'd know what she was talking about. I read it one evening before I paseed it on. What a great book! It's full of really useful tips on what to do and what to take and is written in an informative but humourous way. It also reassures the reader that any issues they have, have almost certainly been experienced by many people before them and the key is not to panic!
My daughter groaned when I gave it to her at first, probably thinking not more stuff for me to read, but she soon devoured it and it has proved a hit! - also has a few recipes in the back................;)
Money well spent in my opinion.

Pre-ordered this and got it sent to the university accommodation. It actually turned up earlier than expected so didn't have it before leaving home :-(. After delivering son to room & helping to settle in etc, left him to own devices to eventually find the post-room etc that took care of the packages & parcels. In a brief exchange the next day asking how the headache from the first night pub-crawl was and had he managed to cook something up, he did say, "Oh yeah, that book - not bad Dad, read a bit of it - not bad at all so far". For me that was money well spent. I hope the rest of the Freshers week leaves him time to read more...it will do him some good.. and probably some of his house-mates too !

I have been in the process in the past year of going to university and have been looking for some guidnace on what to do and expect. I first picked up this book in school and have never put it down since! It is one of the best books that i have read, giving great ideas, tips & hints of what to expect and do when time to go to university arrives. I can safely say it is that good a book that it has been the first book i have read fully in years, it kept me intrigued every step of the way and is superbly written by an excellent author. I would recommend this to any body! (Especially young people going to uni)!

Purchased this for my daughter who is going off to Uni - I thought she would turn her nose up......but no she said this is a fantastic book and gives a first timer some insight of what to expect. I have flicked through the parents page and found it informative.

This is an excellent book which I would recommend. It contains everything you need to know before and after attending University. Very helpful and informative in every aspect of university life. (The Ups and downs alike). I would also recommend purchasing this book early - as it gives all kinds of info and tips which would be handy to know prior to attendance, such as items to purchase etc which will ensure you haven't missed that all important item.

Bought for my daughter as a stocking filler Christmas present, (She's hoping to go to Uni in September 2013) not sure what she'll make of it but I've read it cover to cover and thought there was good advice in it and it definitely says what you would say to them i.e. stay safe don't sleep around etc etc but perhaps they'll pay more attention to a contemporary than their parents nagging!

Bought this guide for my little bro who is off to Uni this Sept and gave it a sneaky read beforehand. Its pretty short and concise so is sure to hold the attention of even MY brother, and it just simply covers all the basics of things he'll probably need to know when he's come out of his drink-fuelled binge of Fresher's week. Its a really good guide to have sitting on your shelf, that you can reference if you've got questions, especially about the stuff that you wouldn't even think to ask about pre-Uni, like a simple guide to washing, how to go food shopping, and even health tips and advice. I reckon that he'll definitely find it useful (especially as dipping in and out of this book is much less effort than asking someone!) :)
