As more women undertake graduate school, their need for guidance increases. The good news is, as the number of women who finish graduate school increases, so do the available resources. The Women's Guide to Surviving Graduate School is an excellent resource for women embarking on this educational journey. It is written by women, specifically for women. It provides information and advice relevant to both American and Canadian women, and focuses on elements related to graduate schools in both countries.

The Women's Guide to Surviving Graduate School is the ideal, practical, and handy guide for professionals, students, and faculty in all areas.
