It's that time of year again when school is kicking back in and for me I am a lover of learning so books like this are my weakness. I love learning tips that can help me. I have, I think is the 1s or 2nd edition so when I saw that there was a 4th I wanted it. This book is full of great info! Books like this are great for anyone who's going to school. I found that when I was in high school books like this, even if it was based for college, had helpful tips for me. The 4th edition offers more, it's wonderful!
