Where do I start and how do I prepare


I am extremely new to user experience (rising sophomore). I was wondering if anyone would be willing to give me tips on where to start and how to grow my understanding in preparation for the UX world. I am interested in research as well as design (also very new to me).

Information that will change our lives. ;)

First up, I’d recommend reading this article (and watching the video).
If you have a budget, then reading this book would be hugely valuable (you will have received a discount voucher by email when you signed up here).

This article is the consolidation of all the ‘getting started’ advice from our community and this one is similar but relates specifically to training.

I imagine you have some specific questions, so feel free to ask those here also. :slight_smile:
