Don't leave home without it! * The best, funniest, and most useful survival guide for students * From the best-selling authors of The Diary of a Teenage Health Freak * Illustrated with Steven Appleby's hilarious cartoons You're fantastic, you're the greatest, you're the brainiest, your parents think you're ace, your friends are all envious, your teachers are astounded, in fact you're the best - OK, but...how are you going to cope at college and survive the fresher pressure? Packed with students' descriptions of their own experiences, this book will help you through what could be the most exciting or the most nightmarish period of your life (and will probably be a mixture of both). There are tips on just about everything: from sex, drugs, friendship and food to managing money, finding somewhere to life, organizing your work, and coping with stress. This book is intended for sixth-form pupils, first-year students, and their parents.

Review:

'If you are about to embark on nurse training this book would provide a useful introduction to student life. Based on students' real experiences, this book is both honest and humorous, using quotes, quizzes and cartoons to illustrate the information. At L4.99 it is good value for money.'
Claire Smith, Nursing Times, Volume 90, No. 34

'It's practical, encouraging and cheerful.'
Coventry Evening Telegraph.

'It may help to hear other students' experiences, and a new book called "Fresher Pressure", by doctors Aidan Macfarlane and Ann McPherson, will give you some sound advice on how to survive your university years.'
Hannah Stephenson, Evening Chronicle

'"Fresher Pressure", the ultimate student survival guide, will give you the plain facts, good and bad, about how to cope with your first term and beyond.'
Hana Fazal, Evening Courier

'a whacky, down-to-earth guide which relies heavily on the experiences of students themselves ... Anyone planning to go to college this autumn might do well to keep this book away from their parents - unless they want to turn them white overnight.'
South Wales Echo

'What makes Fresher Pressure such an excellent book is that its sensible advice is leavened with humour; it is packed with honest, uncensored quotes from students ... Written in a down to earth and unpatronising style, ... A most useful and entertaining book.'
Elaine Saunders. Times Educational Supplement

'Useful survival lguide, enlivened by cartoons on everything likely to worry students.'
Maris Ross. Daily Mail. Oct '94

'... an offbeat illustrated guide to studen survival,'
Pulse Oct '94
