Hello,

I am looking for a few good books that talk about the details of applying to a PhD program. Soem of the questions that I would like answered are: How does one select the schools? How do admissions work? How is one evaluated? How can one maximize chances of admission?

I've seen a few books praised on various forums, but they all seem a bit outdated (published before 2000). How big of a problem is that?

I'd appreciate any titles and your opinion on them. Thank you.

I would highly recommend https://www.amazon.com/dp/0374524777/?tag=pfamazon01-20&tag=pfamazon01-20. The first 9ish chapters are devoted to pre-grad school topics like choosing a school, choosing an advisor, applying, and financial aid. This book will remain useful in your years to come as it also talks about graduate school life, writing your thesis, and finding a job afterward.
