Re: “Global studies

Being an international student in the US isn't easy, given our complex culture and language. A new award-winning worldwide book/ebook that helps anyone coming to the US is "What Foreigners Need To Know About America From A To Z: How to Understand Crazy American Culture, People, Government, Business, Language and More.” It paints a revealing picture of America for those who will benefit from a better understanding, including international students. Endorsed worldwide by ambassadors, educators, and editors, it also identifies “foreigners” who became successful in the US and how they contributed to our society, including students.
A chapter on education explains how to be accepted to an American university and cope with such things as a new culture, friendship process and classroom differences they will encounter. Some stay here after graduation. It has chapters that explain how US businesses operate and how to get a job (which differs from most countries), a must for those who want to work for an American firm here or overseas. It also has chapters that identify the most common English grammar and speech problems foreigners have and tips for easily overcoming them, the number one stumbling block they say they have to succeeding here.
Most struggle in their efforts and need guidance from schools’ international departments, immigration protection, host families, concerned neighbors and fellow students, and books like this to extend a cultural helping hand so we all have a win-win situation. Good luck to all wherever you study!

Re: “STUDENT SURVIVAL GUIDE '12: Advice for freshmen

Advice for freshmen- don`t throw your money away on books you won`t need. Wait till you make sure you`ll use them, then look for the cheapest option to get in print, or even better- a free option to get in digital form. Start your downloading quests at it`s probably the only free textbooks site you`ll need, they practically have every subject covered.
