A Mathematician's Survival Guide is a new addition to Stephen's Krantz "How To", series, the best known of which is How To Teach Mathematics. The present book, written in the same strong and opinionated tone, is meant to guide prospective mathematicians through the process of getting a graduate degree in mathematics, getting a job, and obtaining tenure. The book is based on the author's extensive experience as faculty at several well-known institutions, and on his role as advisor to many graduate and undergraduate students

Graduate school marks the first step toward a career in mathematics for young mathematicians. During this period, they make important decisions which will affect the rest of their careers. Here now is a detailed guide to help students navigate graduate school and the years that follow. <P>In his inimitable and forthright style, Steven Krantz addresses the major issues of graduate school, including choosing a program, passing the qualifying exams, finding an advisor, writing a thesis, and getting that first job. As with his earlier guide, How to Teach Mathematics, he avoids generalities, giving clear advice on how to handle real situations. The book also contains a description of the basic elements of a mathematical education, as well as a glossary and appendices on the structure of a typical department and university and the standard academic ranks. <P>Steven G. Krantz is an accomplished mathematician and an award-winning author. He has published 130 research articles and 45 books. He has worked in many different types of mathematics departments, supervised both masters and doctoral students, and is currently the Chair of the Mathematics Department at Washington University in St. Louis.

I purchased a few Discrete Mathematics textbooks and study aides because my assigned one (Goodaire and Parmenter 3e) was, quite frankly, incomprehensible. I have in addition to the one I mentioned the Rosen and the Epp, both of which are much better, though none of them are light reading.

I also purchased several study aids for kindle such as Discrete Mathematics Demystified, 2000 solved problems in Discrete Mathematics and Math for Computer Applications. I also bought the significantly less popular textbook by Babu Ram, which I'm finding to be the easiest textbook to read out of the four textbooks

Of the study Aids I found 2000 Solved problems the most useful (oftentimes textbooks kind of leave you hanging for problem sets), followed by Math for Computer Applications. I think you should buy a print version of the latter though as the kindle version frequently cuts off graphs on the right and the conversion to digital is occasionally dodgy. The 2000 Solved problems also has this, but much, much less often, so I'd still recommend the digital of that.

Somewhat recommended, though I'd get several other study aids before it.

This book is great. I bought it soon after graduating with a BA in Mathematics, right before beginning my Masters. While it is focused on PhD students, it is still applicable to MSc. students. It walks you through what to expect in grad school and beyond. It has very helpful advice for a lot of situations that come up and was a complete lifesaver for me. I would definitely recommend this to anyone going to grad school for math.

You should read this if you want to be a graduate student in mathematics. Maybe some contents are outdated but still worth reading it. As a Ph.D. student in the math​ department, I have got lots of advice from this book.

Many have written before me, closer to the day-to-day grind of graduate work. Being retired and holding a DSc in math, I enjoyed reading this book and was impressed with the depth of sound advice it offers to those students going on to higher learning or just having started. Highly recommend.

This book is good for those who need a little extra help when taking their discrete math course. The book provides practice problems and a final for review. One can use this book along side his textbook and do fine. I highly recommend you to talk with your professor about any doubts about how to write a proof that is in the book. He/she should be able to share with you on how to do it correctly. The book provides good information for the money. I would highly recommend Schaum's Easy Outline of Discrete Mathematics. Schaum's Outline is more concise and much smaller and great for a quick reference. I hope this review helps!

"Survival Guide" might be a misnomer, because this is less a book of advice and more a description of what the next several years of your life will be like if you choose to pursue a Ph.D. in mathematics. For me, this made the book far more valuable than the "tricks and tips" type book I was expecting. I feel like I actually know what lies ahead for me in much greater detail now than I did with the Career Services basic synopsis. That I want to play with numbers for the rest of my life was never in doubt, but it's good to have a less murky picture of the process now. Of course, I won't fully know how accurate the book's description is for a few years, so we'll see.

It does NOT demystify anything for me. It introduces new notation, new concepts and DOES NOT explain them. eg, it introduces the Derivative in 1 line without any explanation - somehow Lim x-> 0 (f(c+h)-f(c))/h relates to f(x)=x^2+x because in 2 lines it shows that because a limit can be calculated for the former at a value means that a derivative of the latter can be found with the same value. Sorry, not demystified here - how does the former even relate to the latter? An explanation of that would demystify.
Good book, though some of the work-through problems can still be a bit unclear. Might just be this reader.
