      "READ BEFORE YOU BUY"

      This book seems like it is for a student; however, it is mostly based for parents. This guy talks too much about himself and how well he succeeded. He teaches you the basics, stuff everyone already knows. There is little talk about tips that are actually helpful. I would expect so much more but i guess you get what you pay for!
