Crush it at College – Book Review

Crush it at CollegeWhy wasn’t this book around when I went to university? This was the question I kept asking myself as I read Crush It At College!

Crush It At College was written by two Nova Scotians, Tinlin Academic Advising and Consulting’s Bryan Tinlin, and Danny Zacharias, a lecturer at Acadia University. Collectively, they give useful, concise advice for everything from studying and scheduling, to homework and writing papers. I love their suggestions for helpful apps, software, and handy tools to enhance your productivity at college (I wish they existed 20 years ago, too)!

Crush It At College is a must-read for anyone heading to university or college. I have already gifted this wonderful book (Kindle version) to a young lady who was heading off to university this fall. I look forward to handing a copy to each of my children as they head off to university or college in the future! They won’t have to learn the “hard way”. What  other hints or tips will you find inside?
