Psychology Major's Handbook / Edition 4 available in Paperback
Kuther (psychology, Western Connecticut State U.) opens with a handy guide to the different schools within psychology and the differences among its various practitioners, and follows with practical advice about deciding on a major, developing tools for academic success, writing a literature review, writing an empirical paper, finding a job with a bachelor's degree, doing the same with a graduate degree, and applying to graduate school. Many of her observations apply to other majors as well, but Kuther is careful to keep psychology majors on track in terms of self-assessment (she includes journal exercises) and such important matters as the proper style guide to use in psychology and evolving attitudes and responses to the discipline itself.
