    +1I agree. It has never been a con to have it with you. Shows that you care about your craft to have it ready to present.

    I'm the lone designer in the office, but there are about 5 that work together in another country. I find myself having to branch out to different people in the office to get feedback, critiques, opinions....

    I am not sure on these books,but my advice is the more the better. Take a look at your college program book list. And check out some websites like chapters graphic design section. Basically if your are thinking about graphic design, stick with the books that are more about designetc. compared to the history and nitty gritty stuff, this way you can see if it is what you want to do. here is a post on this about some stuff:

    my advice Read all you can and try to do as much as you can to see if it is really what you want to do before you go to college. Best of luck
