I especially liked the section on housing. Being a student and leaving home for the first time I found the information invaluable.
This is the one time my mother got it right. I think they should give it out on fresher's week.
Simply put it is a list of all the scams and blags that it took the likesof me and my mates three years to work out, tidily organised into oneconcise book. During the dark days of cash-flow problems (which tend toresemble the hoover dam)known as university, this seems like anindispensible aid to keeping your head above water in a variety of (legal)ways.
Since its not from the library there is a chance that they will actuallyread it well before the third year. I can only sit and be jealous of thisyears fresh crop of first years as they sit smug in the knowledge thattheir ride through the first tumultuous years of post-home life will be assmooth as... well picking up a book and reading it.
However a little of the info is out of date, such as course fees etc, but as that is such a minority of the book it was still a worthwhile buy.
Tihs is defenitly a book for a prospective student/fresher as has enough info to help them get by all in one place!
