    This review is from: Applying to Graduate School in Psychology: Advice from Successful Students and Prominent Psychologists (Paperback)

    This book was very helpful for me in understanding the graduate application process. My undergraduate institution does not have an advisor to help me, so I had to figure it out on my own. The book was very detailed and specific, and it explained the process and answered my questions a lot. The book also gave tips and advice for every stage of the application process. I feel like I wasted money on other books that only half-way explained things before finding this one. I strongly recommend buying this book if you are considering an advanced degree in psychology like me.

    This book does offer some good insight from students and professors, but is not helpful if you want a how to guide to help you with the process.
