Hundreds Of Heads Better Than One

Reviews

I have a daughter who is finishing up high school and who may be setting her sights on college courses in the near future. We’ve been keeping our eyes open for books that will help her continue her studies. There’s a book that caught me by surprise- How To Get A’s in College, published by the Hundreds of Heads group. LOL! I thought this book might be a study book (like an SAT prep book or something), but it’s not. It’s much better! It’s a compilation of pithy advice and helpful tips about how to survive the college years, and how to do well! There are tips from students from all walks of life, so some are extremely helpful. Some are also uproariously funny:

My Biology teacher caught me when I fell asleep in a 200-person class. I was very much asleep, almost to the point where drool was coming out of my mouth. People nudged me because she was calling my name. I dropped my books on the floor as I woke up. I remember her saying, “It’s so nice of you to join us again.”

Oops. lol!

There are excellent tips in the book. I never went to college, so some things were real eye-openers. The book is over 200 pages long, but it is small sized, and reads easily like those “For Dummies” books. If you have a high school student preparing for college (or even real life, lol), this is a fun book that he/she will enjoy reading. Some stories are so helpful (and amusing) that you might even read it to each other during family times. It’s that good!

By the way, the publishing company has a website devoted to their dozens of books like these. (They have books like How to Survive Your Retirement, How to Survive Your Marriage, lol!). I was pleasantly surprised at the website! It’s chocked full of advice, tips, and loads of stuff, much that I found helpful for my own independent studying.

    Sounds interesting! I have a son that will be entering his senior year of high school, so this is something we’ll need in the next year or so!
