In 2000 alone, more than one million people in their 20's left the safe confines of their American college campuses and entered the workforce or graduate school. Many had completed internships to get real world experience, or had rented apartments during their final years of school. But the vast majority of recent grads have lived in dorms their entire college career, or otherwise have little experience in living on their own, not knowing anything about what awaited them at the end of their walk across the stage at graduation. In short, they needed the information in "Graduate! Everything You Need to Know to Succeed After College."

"Graduate!" is a complete guide to not just surviving, but thriving and living well after college. It includes advice on finding and keeping a job, renting an apartment, living with a roommate, handling money issues including saving, budgeting, and credit, how to decipher health and auto insurance, and even how to decorate, cook, and dress. Chock full of checklists, questionnaires, and samples of key documents, "Graduate!" is the one source that college grads need to do well in the "real world."
