  • Wow, talk about your crappy books! I strongly recommend that you spend 5 minutes searching Google with the parameters “Psychology Industrial Organizational”. I can guarantee that you’ll find the exact same information contained in this book.

    I’m giving this book 2 stars, because it would have some use in a high school guidance counseling office. However, if your not buying for that specific purpose and you don’t mind reading off of a monitor you can save yourself a few bucks.

  • I was a little bit discouraged by a previous review, but purchased the book anyway. This book has helped me TREMENDOUSLY. I was not sure if the MA & PhD in I/O Psych were right for me, but after reading the book, looking up the websites referenced throughout, I have made a very informed decision. I love the actual accounts from I/O Psych majors and what their work is really like. If you know everything about this field, I can see how this book could be a waste of time. But if you’re like me and know only the basics, this book will help you not only determine if I/O Psych is the right academic path for you, but also provide guidance as to what career path you could take with this degree. I had no idea how many options I had. And I did try the Google idea and did not come up with nearly as much trustworthy information as contained in this book. I don’t know about you, but I don’t always believe everything I see online. This book is priceless (and pricey but worth it)!! Thank you Tara L. Kuther whoever you are!!

  • As a professor having a doctorate in I/O Psychology, this is a very user-friendly book, perfect for sophomore/junior level college students interested in I/O Psych. I always recommend this book to students who want to know more about general graduate school issues and who are leaning towards I/O. I don’t require students in my classes to purchase the book, but I do suggest that they buy it, especially since the price suits the typical college student.

    One warning about the book, however, is that it includes a section on Human Factors which really is an entirely different field with its own various associations and journals separate from I/O. However, students are most likely not going to be introduced to the Human Factors field unless they research careers in I/O; therefore, its inclusion in the book is not a major issue for me.
