  1. Hello, I am looking into start writing my thesis proposal, specifically doing the background research section. I was wondering if anyone had any tips on how to decide what information is important and should be included, how broad do I need to go? Just in general what advice do you have for writing the proposal and finding the background information? thanks!
  2. I am a third year PhD student at a top-tier institution who produced a life-saving study guide for comps in International Relations, and am looking for advice on how/where to sell it. It contains (1) summaries of about 400 key readings; (2) definitions of about 100 key terms; (3) links to class notes and completed practice exams; (4) lists of past exam questions from my department totaling around 40 in number; and (5) a chapter-by-chapter reading summary of the Handbook of International Relations, covering every topic pertinent to the field as it stands. The guide is about 150 pages long in total (not including the links mentioned in (3)) and is extremely comprehensive. All of it is written in my own words so can be memorized or recycled exactly for future comps without any risk of plagiarism. For health-related reasons, I am leaving my program and will not be taking my comps after all, so none of the material in the study guide has ever been used. If anyone has suggestions for how to sell this packet, or if you are potentially interested in purchasing it yourself, please respond to this thread! Thanks!
  3. Hi: So I'm a couple of weeks away from my comprehensive/qualifying examinations and I still have several books that I need to read. I'm looking for honesty - how often when you were studying did you simply read the intro/conclusion of a book AND/OR just book reviews? I'm the kind of person who enjoys reading as much of the book as possible - but it's crunch time and I'm looking for comfort in numbers. Thanks!

    Comps

    Hey guys! I'm going to have my comprehensive exam in 3 weeks and I'm already scared like a little girl..I have no idea how I'm going to pass them, I am sooo nervous..I am afraid I will fail only because of that. Do you have any good tips on how to pass them?? I would also know if there are any hotlines or services? ¬°Gracias!
  5. I'm about a semester away from writing my comp exam for my MA in history. I've read through the graduate handbook and will be discussing this with my advisor, but I thought I'd ask around for the types of books that make up an exam list? Do we include all the books from the classes we've taken, or just classes relevant to our field? Do we satisfy our advisor and second chair (the only ones who ask questions on the exam)? Or do we make an effort to broaden our scope? Can we include books we've never formally studied for a class, but like, or think relevant? Do we include pure theory or method texts? Just curious what people who have taken the exams did or what others who will be taking them will do.
