comment What is the point of a lecture when you have a textbook?
@JoshuaBenabou: You need to work out whether lectures are your thing. If you can get by without them, then try. One thing is that you may not know exactly what material from the book you need to learn, especially if the lectures and textbook diverge.

@Alexandros: A PhD student should not be expected to do independent research at the start of a PhD program, surely.

comment Is it fine to make a poster on a topic in which I have an article under review?
If you were a publisher and you posted it the web pages for an electronic journal that you happen to have, then it would be considered as published.
