Unsolicited Advice, IV: How to Be a Good Graduate Student: Past installments of Unsolicited Advice dealt with such mechanical topics as how to choose an undergraduate school or graduate school, or how to get into graduate school. (Hell if I know how to get into undergraduate schools.) Now we step fearlessly into somewhat more treacherous territory: how to be a good graduate student. As always, this is one idiosyncratic viewpoint, and others should be offered in the comments. (Via Cosmic Variance.)
Excellent advice. Even though it is from the point of view of physics graduate study, it applies well to computer science.
