Rob Peters has written a book which is more helpful to college students deciding whether or not to pursue graduate studies than any other resource I've seen. Much of the book focuses on developing organizational strategies and building relationships with professors and other contacts in your field. These tactics are just as helpful at the undergrad level as they will be later, so "Getting What You Came For" is helping me already! The book avoids the vague or trite advice one finds in other sources, and an enjoyable sense of humor (complemented by Peters' cartoons) pervades the book. The chapter on choosing between Ph.D. and Master's programs is quite helpful. Peters emphasizes that grad school is as political as any other working environment - his concrete tips for developing successful networks and interpersonal rapport with your adviser and thesis committee are invaluable. If you are a college student thinking about postgrad work, reading this book is a sine qua non.
