The official date hasn’t yet been set, but my comprehensive exam in public policy is now about a month away. Whereas the other members of my study group rattle off the authors, titles, and years of books and articles with disarming rapidity, I find myself unable to remember anything more than the haziest outlines of most sources. I have a great deal of work to do, especially if I am to avoid wasting the summer with re-preparation after a failed first attempt.
First, however, I have a stack of papers to finish grading (for tomorrow). I also have one last paper of my own to write for the 30th, along with twice-a-week comp prep meetings, for which I am meant to write draft outlines to past questions.
