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 I've seen a few books praised on various forums, but they all seem a bit outdated (published before 2000).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.
