Student Houses Reading

Stella Said:

I want to get into buying houses and renting them out. Where do I start?

We Answered:

Start learning about the housing market.
It'll be cheaper buying houses right now since the housing market is in such a slump but renting it out would be a bit tough, you have to factor in your mortage, and to make a profit from the renting and damages it'll make during those years of renting...

Allen Said:

I have a german student staying at my house whats something american to do read details?

We Answered:

Have a bonfire with a wiener roast and smores for dessert or organize a hayride with other parents in the area for all their kids in the same age group.

Dan Said:

What are some books that a college student should read to prepare him or her for the real world?

We Answered:

No. 1 on my list:

"The Truth About Money", 3rd Ed. by Ric Edelman.
[This will answer your basic questions about retirement, buying a house, buying a car, etc.]


Followed by:

"The Lies About Money" by Ric Edelman

"Dealing with People You Can't Stand" by Dr. Rick Brinkman & Dr. Rick Kirschner

"Get Anyone to Do Anything: Never Feel Powerless Again" by David J. Lieberman, PhD (not to be confused with another book by a different author, but a similar title).


"People Skills" by Robert Bolton, PhD.

and, of course, the "Bible", by God.

===edit===

The books that I have listed are mostly practical stuff. Many people alos want purpose and meaning in their life also, so I suggest these books:

"The Purpose Driven Life" by Rick Warren

"Too Busy Not to Pray" by Bill Hybels

"The Kneeling Christian" by An Unknown Christian

"Mere Christianity" by C.S. Lewis

Melinda Said:

About roommates in student housing?

We Answered:

I think for you it would be an excellent opportunity for you. Although a word of caution, everthing in dorms spread like wildfire, and if you spend too much time hanging out or using your time in non-school pursuits, your grades could (not necessarily, but they tend to) suffer. Find a balance between the guys and the grades, or even have some study groups. If I sound boring, I should first remind you not to neglect the anatomy classes. LOL
Have fun, enjoy college, but don't regret it.

Shannon Said:

reading comprehention...why did they time us "70"s students??

We Answered:

Timed reading tests won't, I think, ever disappear. But when you learn how to scan correctly and after you practice it enough, you can achieve great scores on those tests - without ever even reading the passage on which the questions are based.
There are "tricks" to scanning, and when you know how to use them, you can achieve both rapid times and very accurate responses.
The way you "read" times reading tests is very specialized and has nothing to do with how you read for pleasure. However, it is a useful skill that can come in handy in other areas as well, for example in researching on the Net.

Kenneth Said:

Required Reading / Classics A High School Student Would Enjoy?

We Answered:

Well, I really liked To Kill a Mockingbird, but that's neither here nor there...
What genres do you like? Many of the "classics" can fit into some modern-day genres. For instance, if you're into horror, go for some Edgar Allen Poe-most especially The Pit and The Pendulum.
Others-Some Shakespearian plays. If you're looking for "light" reading, start with his comedies.
John Steinbeck's "Of Mice and Men" is a good one, especially if you're into reading banned books like I am. (Daughter of a school librarian-it comes with the territory!)
Mark Twain's "Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" and "Adventures of Tom Sawyer" are a good read for anyone. His "Personal Recollections of Joan of Arc" is good if you're a historical fiction reader.
You may find Virginia Woolf's "The Waves" interesting. It's written in stream-of-consiousness.

That's a fairly decent list to get you started. Hope it helps!
