Not really sure if I liked public relations to make it my major, so I got this book from my classmate's recommendation. Wow! Just packed with info, and I loved the Dummies format! The Internet stuff was a bit weak, though, so same guy loaned me her Guerrilla PR: Wired by Michael Levine. 'Nother Wow! Totally deals with pr nowadays, the 'net and all that. But, PR for Dummies really did a good job of covering the whole thing. Not just stuff you think about--how to get into the media, but also budgets, planning, campaigns, everything! So, if you don't quite get what your professors are saying, then this book can definitely help you out.
