Comments to eBook The Psychology Major's Handbook

Something nagging at me is preventing me from giving this book 5 stars. For one thing, it's purported to be a handbook for current psychology majors, but the first one or two chapters are directed towards evaluating reasons for selecting psychology as a major. If you're not sure or still shaky on your major being psychology, this may help; but for those who are positive and solid in their choice, it's not helpful. To me it states too many things that are obvious. It's definitely not worth nearly $30! "Getting In," the APA-written manual on getting into graduate school, was a little over $10 and was a much better buy than this book.

However the book is good, and it may help those wishy-washy major-changers settle on whether or not psychology is good for them. My advice: borrow it from someone who has it, or find it at the library, and then decide if it's a constant reference you'll need or one-time reading material.

Hi Dr. Kuther!
I just wanted to tell you THANK YOU! I checked The Psych Major's Handbook out from our library and I found it to be an indispensable resource! It's compelling, thorough, easy to read and CHOCK FULL of "can't-do-without" information.
I'm scheduled to graduate from University of Central Florida next fall and I'll be bound for grad school. I was panicking about grad school, the dreaded GRE, and finding a job before reading your book but now I feel a lot more confident. I will DEFINITELY buy the book. I just gotta have it!
Thank you again!
