An inside look at the intellectual and emotional rigors of becoming a Ph.D.

Science News

Three Ph.D.s blend practical advice with insight into the "sociology" of academia. The nuts-and-bolts aspects of this book deal with the application process and include picking a dissertation committee and arguing an oral exam. Personal stories sprinkle the text, leavening any glamour there is to postgraduate study with hard realities. These include an almost minute-to-minute account of a graduate student's typical day.
