A graduate student in the sciences and engineering has to attend conferences, write journal articles, navigate collaborations, negotiate for lab equipment, mediate between squabbling lab mates, indulge eccentric professors, teach undergraduates, and secure funding every semester. Undergrad teaches you none of these skills, and no one warns you before you start grad school that you need them.Good Grad! is a practical-and politically incorrect-guide for current and future grad students trying to unravel the mysteries of the masters degree and Ph.D.

For most of your time in grad school, youre not worrying about looking good to an admissions committee or beefing up a resume. Instead, youre hoping that youll get that teaching position next semester so you can pay the rent- youre working late into the night to get that conference abstract submitted before the deadline- youre wondering how to get forms signed when your advisor is out of town- youre hoping you wont have to spend the weekend feeding rats in the lab. Good Grad! contains the hard-fought wisdom of those who have gone through these trials by fire and come out the other side.For budding scientists and engineers, Good Grad!

is an indispensable resource at every stage of a graduate career, from when youre deciding whether to attend grad school at all to when youre finally defending your thesis, and all the years in between.Table of Contents:IntroductionChapter 1: Going to Grad SchoolChapter 2: The Milestones of Grad SchoolChapter 3: Your AdvisorChapter 4: The Research GroupChapter 5: Your ResearchChapter 6: FundingChapter 7: Going to a ConferenceChapter 8: Publishing a Journal ArticleChapter 9: The BureaucracyChapter 10: Getting a JobEpilogue: Social Life
