9780811842303: 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.

About the Author:

Jennifer Worick graduated from a kick-ass Big 10 school, surviving numerous pints of peach schnapps and countless walks of shame. Co-author of the Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook: Dating & Sex, she lives in Philadelphia. Go Blue!

Joshua Piven graduated from a large Ivy League university in underr five years. He owes everything to his English professors, who choose to remain anonymous. Co-author, with David Borgenicht, of the Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook series, he lives in Philadelphia.

David Borgenicht has survived dozens of collegiate nightmares, including the one where you wake up naked in the middle of an Art History exam that you haven't studied for. He now lives a stable, adult life in Philadelphia.

From Publishers Weekly:

Filled with cheeky but practical solutions to just about any problem a college student could face, this slender volume opens with an ominous warning: "when a life is imperiled or a dire situation is at hand, safe alternatives may not exist." Nonetheless, many of the situations it tackles are far from life threatening; how to avoid doing laundry, how to pull an all-nighter and how to identify bad cafeteria food are among them. Its advice on choosing a school and surviving dorm bathrooms ("never touch the floor with your bare feet") clearly suggests that it was produced by a team who knows that of which they write. And the detailed primer on making it through the travails of college partying—with tips on how to avoid a nightmare hookup—isn’t there just for effect: it includes serious counsel like "Do not let a stranger get a drink for you" and "Clear the potential hook-up with a trusted friend." All in all, this is a handy reference to have while at college, and would make useful required reading for first-year students.
