    Every veteran needs to read this!

    This is a how-to book like I have never seen before. I was not and am not a veteran who faced the prospect of going to college but if I was, I would want to own this book. The author seamlessly offers his personal experience with a rich story craft that makes the book so readable. If you are a veteran with the GI Bill available but don't know what to do, buy this book and go to school. If you are in the service (thank you for your service!) then get this book to get you ready for the transition to college that will come. This book is more than a guide, but it works extremely well as a step by step guide. The author provides a well-formulated gameplan that will help veteran students deal with the challenges of college with confidence. This is the best book for any veteran who is either in school or planning on going. A fantastic book that should be on every veteran’s bookshelf and/or e-reader. Disclaimer: I received a copy from the author in the hopes I'd review it. My Rating: 5 stars

    An eye-opener!

    Reviewed by Steven Robson for Readers' Favorite Combat to College by John H. Davis is an elegant, astoundingly clear guide to the successful completion of college-level studies, specifically directed at military veterans, who face perhaps the most difficult journey of any to achieve that coveted degree. What makes this an incredible challenge for veterans is the whole change in structures in which they are expected to thrive; moving from a military environment rigid in controls, checkpoints, and accountability, to a college regime that places all of these burdens squarely on the individual. Mr. Davis not only shows how to make a successful transition to self-control in a college world but goes even further by demonstrating precisely how to tap into all the strengths gained through military service and apply them to achieve the best effect in the most important mission of your future. Whilst this book speaks to military veterans, make no mistake; the lessons, mindsets, and planning strategies laid out apply just as pertinently to anyone hoping to successfully navigate higher studies. After reading John H. Davis’ Combat to College, I had a feeling of sadness within, which I know stemmed from the realization that if I had this book available to me when I entered college, it may have opened my eyes to the important things; all of the background noise that derailed my studies has been spotlighted, and strategies to cope with these have been detailed in ways you simply can’t fail to comprehend. There is no guarantee for success because the final responsibility lies with the individual, but the tools, methodologies and just plain common sense approaches documented in Combat to College will clearly lay blame for failure squarely on your shoulders; this book removes the possibility of you saying 'I just didn’t know how to manage it.'
