Does anyone know any good resources for graduate school preparation, particularly in the physical sciences? I'm a sophomore and I want to get ready to start applying, but I need some help...

I am currently in the second year of my study for a B.S. in Materials Science and Engineering. I am almost certain I would like to continue on to graduate school and enroll in a PhD program, but I'm not quite sure how to get started. I've looked at the sites for several programs and they all talk about the GRE, which I've started to prepare for, but otherwise I'm kind of at a loss.
For instance, how does one choose an advisor or a particular school? I am interested in magnetic and electronic materials, but I'm not sure exactly what I want to work on. Any web resources or books on the subject of applying to a graduate science program would be much appreciated. Thanks!
