A good guide to the basics, but deeper social pressures are the real challenge  Dec 20, 2008
This is a good book to guide you through basic college issues. However, for many young adults, the real challenge of college life is learning to deal with intense social pressures. I am a former student of Florida State University who saw it all and did it all. There were many things that I did right, but there were also plenty of things I did wrong. If you want to learn from the mistakes of a student who has survived the trials and tribulations of the real college experience, then I suggest you check out my memoir COLLEGE LIFE EXTREME: Lies, Sex, Drugs and Violence. It's written in the narrative form which makes it a much more exciting read than the traditional student guide book. These true life stories include tales of: hazing, lewd intoxication, drug abuse, discrimination, steroids, infidelity, Greek Life, violent crime, seduction, and vengeance. This is the true story of what really goes on at large college campuses in the United States, a behind-the-scenes no holds barred account of what happens beyond the closed doors of dormitories, fraternities, nightclubs, and the bedrooms of young men and women.
 
Jesus Saves, and so does this book  Jul 16, 2008
This book has a "born again" slant to it, but, as an informative and entertaining tool, its appeal could definitely be more widespread. Mr. Turner's writing style is so entertaining and the humor so enjoyable, that he makes the religious angle palatable for the non-believers, and nirvana for Christian teens. He makes the point, several times, that his Christian audience should be respectful of all cultures, creeds, and lifestyles.

Dating, dorm life, physical and emotional wellness, money, and educational involvement are covered. Humor is entertwined with good sense as each segment of the complete college experience is discussed. The warning to wear flip flops in the shower (p.87) is a good example of the mixing of humor with some pretty good advice. And really, a lot of this information would come in handy for thousands of noncollege bound young people - particularly,but not explicitly, Christian - heading out on their own. Kids will have roommates once they leave home, even if they are not in college. They still date, party, have financial dilemmas, and,hopefully, wear flip flops in the communal shower.

Great preparation for college...  Mar 22, 2007
I ordered this book a few weeks back, because I was starting to get a little nervous about getting ready for school and what to expect exactly. Mathew Paul Turner, makes this book really enjoyable to read. I found his writing style to be very entertaining. Plus I think the book really hits some key points about what to expect as far as orginizations, friends, dating, class, and life in general at school will be. Now this book is definately from a Christian perspective, but I think it would just as well serve the purpose of a conservative person.

I guess I won't really know how accurate this was until I experience the real thing, but from the people I have talked to about college this book seems to nail the college experience so I can definately recommend it for that reason alone.
 
An excellent source of information for those of you preparing for college  Nov 17, 2006
I'm 17 and about halfway through my senior year of high school. I purchased this book in hopes of revealing some inside information about college life. I'm happy to say that it does not disappoint. "Everything You Need To Know Before College: A Student's Survival Guide" is very well-written and informative. Matthew Paul Turner is an excellent author who writes with real-world perspective and down-to-earth knowledge of the subject. It's both informative and entertaining at the same time. A word of warning though: this book is written from a born-again Christian perspective, so for you atheists out there, you might want to pass this one up. Also, the author went to Belmont college, which is a Christian school, so he might be a little biased or uninformed on some things. But it's all good. This book is excellent and should not be passed up.
