One of the biggest challenges as a student moves from high school to college is balancing new social freedom with academic expectations. Here, the authors seek to help young people reconcile work and play. The book starts off by answering some broad questions, such as what to do if you need help and how to select a major, but gets down to specifics, such as how to read a textbook efficiently.
