About the Book
Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook: College — 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.
