Re: [BKARTS] Grad school vs. Not



My experience is that if you like to do it, jump right in and start. Keith
Smith books are a good reference for learning on your own while you decide
how to further your studies. Also, there are no end of workshops to take
part in. Here is a good place to learn of them.

Have fun!
