A computer science graduate school survival guide, intended for prospective or novice graduate students. This guide describes what I wish I had known at the start of graduate school but had to learn the hard way instead. It focuses on mental toughness and the skills a graduate student needs. The guide also discusses finding a job after completing the Ph.D. and points to many other related web pages.
"So long, and thanks for the Ph.D.!"
"Everything I wanted to know about C.S. graduate school
at the beginning but didn't learn until later."
