Product Overview

From the publisher:
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:
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. 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!
