Perfect present. Was not quite as up to date as I had hoped but the general information was excellent.

I thought this is the author's first attempt at professional writing - you know, student straight out of Uni, full of tales to tell, tips on drinks, advice on the pitfalls to avoid etc etc. Therefore I was prepared to overlook some of the inevitable bad writing and clichéd 'prose' and tips on health and binge drinking. Hell, there were even three glowing reviews for the book and it only came out recently! What could I lose?

A lot, me thinks. Missed the fact that this is written by a journalist - a seasoned one supposedly. So why the sloppy grammar? Why the rushed 'research' which misses some service providers when mentioning others? Oh, and if you do get your hands on one - marvel at the "experts" offering comment. Hilarious.

A poor effort all round. And even a poorer show are the efforts by the author's friends to prop up the star rating of this book here on Amazon. The book only came out this summer but apparently it helped somebody get through their degree. In 1999. Class.

So while it might not deserve merely one star, I feel that the other three reviews aren't actual ones and it certainly doesn't deserve five stars. Hence the one.

I bought the book to give me some guidance before (hopefully) starting university in September as I was struggling to find something comprehensive and I'm really pleased I did! It gives loads of tips and information for students from things like student bank accounts and student loans, to more personal bits. Whilst it is really informative the tone of the book is quite tongue in cheek and fun so it was easy to read. Overall a great read and something I'll definitely dip into time and time again.

This was a very interesting read and a must have for not just the thousands of university students around the UK, but also the parents whose children are leaving home for the first time. Highly recommended.

This manual is up to date and realistic for today's student. Covers just about everything, and gives useful tips and links. Good buy overall! x
