Books and Resources from Career Resources:
Peterson's Graduate & Professional Program Directory:
This directory contains university/college profiles that offer valuable information on graduate and professional degrees and certificates, enrollment figures, tuition, financial support, housing, faculty, research affiliations, library facilities, and contact information. It enables students to explore program listings by field and by institution. In-depth descriptions, written by administrators at featured institutions, give complete details on the graduate study available.

In the OneSearch search box you can also see what test prep books can be requested from other universities in the CSU system by clicking on the "CSU Print Title" button.
Finding Books from Other Libraries
The "Borrowing from Other Libraries" has instructions for how to request books from libraries other than SDSU. *Tip: You can use Amazon or other sites to find test prep books. If we don't have them or they are not at another CSU, follow the instructions on this site to have them sent to SDSU.
