This edited volume takes a panoramic scope in describing the terrain of graduate education....In scope and in detail, the map provided by this book is a success....We recommend [it] to people at any point in their graduate education....[It] could save you from major stumbling points that you might otherwise have to learn by trial and error. If it protects the reader from making a poor choice about going to graduate school or poor choices while in it, the book will live up to its title and more than pay back its cost in reduced stress and increased success.
...a compilation of chapters addressing a wide variety of topics pertinent to students of psychology....addresses relevent issues for individuals choosing to complete their formal education in psychology....the book provides a wealth of information to anyone considering a career in psychology. It is a great resource for students at the beginning, middle or end of their graduate education. It also offers an integration of formal education and real-world practical advice to new professionals. I recommend it highly.

Succeeding in Graduate School: The Career Guide for Psychology Students takes a comprehensive, practical approach to guiding its readers through the graduate school experience....a useful resource to have throughout your training....The information provided is...practical and valuable.
It enumerages the key and longstanding departmental issues that have and will continue to make graduate school seem unpredicatable. Before, during, and after graduate school, this book helps to direct one's choices and live with the aftermath of those choices...it addresses questions unique to psychological training and correctly targets the ambiguities related to misperceptions about what psychology is and what psychologists do. The book fully addresses the problem of making a topically oriented core curriculum connect with the evolving professional sphere of actitivity in the world of work and does so with clarity and thoroughness.
Walfish and Hess have 'Succeeded' in creating an indispensable book for any student considering a career in psychology. I recommend this book not only to students but also to the mentors and professors that guide them in this important decision. Reading this book is like going to a private seminar with a panel of experts with MSW, Psy.D., and Ph.D. degrees that includes both new professionals and veterans....In summery, Succeeding in Graduate School: The Career Guide for Psychology Students is comprehensive, details an accurate picture of what the experience entails and provides coping mechanisms....This book is well worth both time and money!
Psychology students and their undergraduate professors often discuss getting into graduate school. Staying in, once accepted, is an entirely new challenge that has heretofore not received the attention it deserves. Walfish, Hess, and their collaborators have contributed a most helpful volume that I would recommend to any psychology graduate student.

Very helpful book for a college graduate. Item arrived promptly. The price is completely unbeatable.
Though the website claimed this to be "like new", you can definitely tell that it's a used one. Not a big problem for me but maybe a concern for someone who wants to use it as a gift.
Would recommend this one for personal use.
The guide concludes with the prudent advice to keep an open mind and keep your eyes open concerning the many ways in which a degree in psychology can be put to good use depending on opportunities available, as well as the changing needs of society. I would like to conclude by saying I wish I had this book available to me as an undergraduate psychology student, and would like to offer my sincere thanks to Dr. Walfish and to my distinguished former professor Dr. Hess, for making this extremely useful and interesting text available. I will continue to tell as many fellow psychology students I can about this guide.
I really enjoyed the opportunity to read more about what grad school is really like, and to hear great solutions to various hurdles that grad students face. Knowing more about the process, warts and all, made me all the more confident that I was making the right choice for myself.
