WIN - 1001 Things Every College Student Needs to Know and 1001 Things Every Teen Should Know Before They Leave Home Books


More kids than ever are applying to college because they know that in this computerized, global economy, a bachelor's degree holds the keys to the kingdom—but more students than ever are leaving school without a degree. In fact, one in three Americans in their midtwenties are college dropouts. Only 54 percent of college freshmen graduate within six years.

Let’s not dwell on how your parents have destroyed their 401(k)s to send you to school. Or how you’ve taken out student loans that you can only hope to pay back if you have a medical degree. Let’s focus on what’s actually happening here. Students are showing up on campus unprepared for the course load, ill equipped to prioritize, helpless to solve problems without Mom running interference, and lacking the inner strength to stand up to the pressures, demands, and challenges they will inevitably face the next four years. Or more.

The fact is, you need to know a few things. Well, maybe about a thousand things. Because college grades, graduate school, and test scores determine who will carry an American Express Platinum Card in the future. If you graduate from any four-year school, the system is on your side. But the system is definitely against you if you do something brainless. Like leave college. This is a world where the educated get richer and the uneducated get poorer.

So the message here is simple. Don’t let something stupid like too much partying, a bad romance, not buying books on time, or chronic disorganization ruin the rest of your life. You need staying power. This book is how to get it.


Every year millions of teens are unleashed into society. And parents are left wondering, “How long will they make it out there?” That’s because studies indicate a full 50 percent of them will move back home in five or six years. And stay for a while. So it’s no wonder that late at night these parents start to worry, “Dear Lord, we didn’t cover everything!
They could be back by Thursday!” Then they frantically call their grown children to tell them the million things they don’t remember teaching them, but the kids are gaily partying the night away with cell phones turned off in celebration of being liberated from their parents. Well, all is not lost. The good news is, there are only about a thousand things a teen needs to learn in order to think and act like an adult. And for the most part, it’s all here. But remember, the time to start preparing children for adulthood is while  they’re still young. The alternative is a thirty-year-old teenager losing the remote control, not cleaning their room, and staying out way past their curfew.
