  1. My preliminary exams (in a humanities field) are coming up in two weeks and am nervous about how I am going to write them while being at home. I have been trying to get a few hours of reading in every day in preparation for the prelims but like many people here, some days I'm more productive than others. Now that the exams are closing in, I am anxious about how to stay focused and motivated to prep for and take the exams. I will have three exams, five days to write each essay with weekend rest days, so the exams will span over three weeks. It sounds like an awful long time to be isolated and stressed-writing in my tiny apartment. Anyone suggestions on how I should approach this nerve-wrecking rite of passage during a pandemic?!
  2. Hi, I'm studying for the preliminary exam. I came back from US Army training so I won't get another chance if I fail this upcoming exam. I heard they ask weird questions which I'm having trouble preparing for. Right now, I am reviewing all the lecture notes. Does anybody have previous exam questions they can share so I can practice? What kinds of questions did you get? thanks in advance.
