“The best thing about Dustin’s book is that it teaches skills that you’ll need for a lifetime, whether you decide to pursue graduate study or not. He offers great tips for staying organized, taking short notes that trigger the memorable aspects of what was said, reading a book and actually understanding it, and using the Internet to streamline research appropriately.” (Alexandra Levit, Get the Job, 5 Stars)
