Once a year Game Developer magazine publishes a special Game Career Guide issue (Fall 2005). This guide has some fairly interesting information on schools with game-related programs and degrees, a salary survey, recommended books in a number of disciplines, and (of course) lots of ads from colleges and game companies.
I would add one book to the Game Production category: Game Development and Production
from Wordware Publishing. I should mention the author is a friend and that my name appears on page 281.
Anyway, I would give a modest recommendation that those interested in entering the game biz consider this guide.
