Great & Helpful Books:
Career Paths in Psychology: Where your degree can take you
Describes a variety of careers one could pursue. The salary estimates are a little outdated, but the descriptions are good.
*Useful for: Figuring what area to look into.
Getting In: A Step-by-Step plan for gaining admission to Graduate School in Psychology
An easy to follow yet comprehensive book for applying. Especially good: is grad school right for you, a suggested time-line check list, form about your needs and assets, forms for sorting schools' information. A little old, but other than tuition estimate, it does apply to current grad school hopefuls.
*Useful for: reading when deciding about applying, for evaluating where you stand, figuring out what you want in a school, tips and suggestions on how to apply
APA Graduate Study in Psychology - both last years and this year editions
A detailed listing for each psychology grad school in Canada and the US, an index of psychology grad programs by topic.
*Useful for: Seeing what programs are available, Creating a list of programs via the Index, Final round of narrowing based on details.
Note: I have not found the first two books available anywhere else on campus, and only the older editions of the APA Graduate Study guide in the libraries. They are often available by order from bookstores or the APA student books website, but stop by to browse through them.
