Description de l’éditeur
The college years are a time of noble pursuit of knowledge, self-betterment—and unending peril! Students are at risk from the moment they receive their acceptance letters. Fortunately, the authors of the phenomenally best-selling Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook series have come to the rescue, offering all-new, hands-on, step-by-step instructions for surviving the worst that higher education has to offer, on campus and off. Learn how to identify a party school, engineer a hookup, survive "the spins," and escape a stadium riot. Discover the best way to sleep in class, pass a test you haven't studied for, avoid the "freshman fifteen," and pull an all-nighter. With practical advice for avoiding laundry and identifying unsafe institutional food, along with an appendix of excuses for missed deadlines and a back-up diploma, this is truly required reading for all college students—and a perfect high school graduation present.
Filled with cheeky but practical solutions to just about any problem a college student could face, this slender volume opens with an ominous warning:"when a life is imperiled or a dire situation is at hand, safe alternatives may not exist." Nonetheless, many of the situations it tackles are far from life threatening; how to avoid doing laundry, how to pull an all-nighter and how to identify bad cafeteria food are among them. Its advice on choosing a school and surviving dorm bathrooms ("never touch the floor with your bare feet") clearly suggests that it was produced by a team who knows that of which they write. And the detailed primer on making it through the travails of college partying--with tips on how to avoid a nightmare hookup--isn't there just for effect: it includes serious counsel like"Do not let a stranger get a drink for you" and"Clear the potential hook-up with a trusted friend." All in all, this is a handy reference to have while at college, and would make useful required reading for first-year students.
