For first time college-students, and parents sending their first child off to college, a little guidance can be immensely helpful. College life is like another world, and navigating it can be intimidating at first for young new college students, and worrisome for the parents of these students. Consulting a Go To College Dummy! help guide can assist in the planning process when students and parents are beginning to prepare for the first college semester. Topics that parents and students will have to consider together are supplies, meal planning, bill planning, home visits, and safety. Students will need to learn about their campus and where they can locate important resources. A college guide can help prepare students with knowledge of when they will need to use certain resources on their campus and how to handle certain situations ranging from academic issues to safety issues to peer-related or dorm issues. Having a resource to consult before beginning college can be immensely relieving for both students as well as parents.
This book is too basic to help all but the most inexperienced. Even high school students know to walk their schedule before the first day of class, take a snack, etc. I found the narration tiresome too.
