Our comprehensive exam is looming. As I take the final two courses (currently enrolled) I am calm about the exam that is one week in length. Many of my friends and fellow colleagues have taken the exam. The suggestions they provided could help others reading this blog. Obviously it all depends on the program, institution, and format of courses; however, our professors provide us the questions to answer (usually 3-5 questions). We have one week to complete the questions and many of the students average 30-40 pages in length, once completed. Tips from students that have taken the test:
- If you have a job, take the entire week off.
- Only work a maximum of 8 hours per day, nothing more.
- Treat the exam as a job, once your 8 hours are finished, stop.
- Do not try to take on family responsibilities while doing your exam.
