Editorial Reviews

These new (some newly revised) titles in a series of over 100 guides describe career options in a variety of fields, along with information on educational requirements, salary statistics, and employment prospects. For example, the title on veterinary medicine, written by a professor of veterinary science, covers the history of veterinary medicine, preparing for a career as a vet, and describes in detail various veterinary careers: working as a general practitioner, a specialist, for a zoo, in public service, in industry, as a teacher or researcher, and in the military. Also covered are related careers, like technicians, and veterinary organizations, along with future trends in the field. Appendices include listings of colleges of veterinary medicine, organizations, publications, and more. Some of the titles, like the ones on public relations and on forensic science, include helpful firsthand accounts by people working in the field. For school and public libraries with special interests in any of these areas, or large career collections.
