So, I'm about to level up for the first time with a human monk…

So, I'm about to level up for the first time with a human monk character (going to level 2, of course), and I was wondering about something. I noticed "Unarmed Attack Bonus" goes from 0 to +1 and I was kind of unsure about what that meant. I'm pretty certain that it means that my unarmed strike gets a +1 to my total attack bonus, but I want to be doubly sure (yes, this is probably the most hideously novice question ever, but I like to be thorough).

Also, what prestige class do you guys recommend for my monk to be lumbering towards? Things of note are my ability scores (STR 15, DEX 18, CON 12, INT 14, WIS 15, CHA 10) and of my higher skills, I have 4 ranks in the following: Balance, Climb, Hide, Jump, Move Silently, and Tumble. Any recommendations?

None: There's nothing so good in a PrC that it's worth trading away high-level Monk class abilities.

Well, there is the Weapons Master and one other Prestige Class that allows you to take it and still gain classes in Monk.

The level 18-20 monk abilities, however, are quite buff.

If you're going to got he PrC route, check out the PrCs in Oriental Adventures. But, in general, you lose too much cool stuff for what you get from the prestige classes.

Admittedly, this only matters if you're going to end up playing a high-level campaign at some point.

Your attack bonus is the same, whether you're unarmed or not. The only reason it's listed again for unarmed attacks is because extra attacks accrue at a different rate. Use your Unarmed Attack Bonus or your Base Attack Bonus as appropriate, but never both added together.
