What helped for me when I studied for my comprehensive exams was to try to see which ones fit together in a group. It was the same thing - about 300ish terms, but I came up with this hilariously useful excel spreadsheet that worked out the possibility of one term appearing over the other based on what group it fit into and the frequency of said group on previous exams. The REALLY hilarious part? Every essay question on the exam was as it predicted. \:D

So, get grouping.

USAPT,

That took a long time to type out. Efficiency of time use is suffering! Get back in the cage! (as I spend an hour on PW)
Actually, nah-- it's nice to see you posting these days.

Well, now I have to spend an hour or two grading all of your collective suffering... good luck up there.

Brendan-- I'm just speechless after reading that last post...

USAPT, I hate to break this to you but you left out the Four Turtle Doves.*

(*Should ALWAYS precede the Five Golden Rings.) \:D

Good luck on your finals!

How much do money do you want? Did you do this for any of the undergrad class or just your graduate ones?
