Overview

The book is written in an easy-to-read format, taking a one-on-one dialog approach, rather than that of a scholarly treatise, of the graduate school process. This new edition reflects the growing influence of the internet and degree granting programs offered via distance education while updating information in the first edition relative to all aspects of the graduate school process. The book provides many useful exercises, tools, and techniques that encourage graduate students to take more control of the process of obtaining a graduate degree.

Developing the research proposal/forming a committee/prepar- ing for compr. written & oral exams/defending the work/pub.
