To prepare for a career in zoology, make sure to get a
well-rounded high school education. A solid grounding in biology
and chemistry is an absolute necessity, but facility in English
will also be invaluable. Writing monographs and articles,
communicating with colleagues both orally and in writing, and
writing persuasive fund-raising proposals are all activities at
which scientists need to excel. Also be sure to read widely, not
merely relying on books on science or other subjects that are
required by the school. The scientist-in-training should search the
library for magazines and journals dealing with areas that are of
personal interest. Developing the habit of reading will help to
prepare you for the massive amounts of reading involved in research
and keeping up with the latest developments in the field. Computer
skills are also essential, since most zoologists not only use the
computer for writing, communication, and research, but they also
use various software programs to perform statistical analyses.
