Comp Exam Study Resources

MA Students who are studying for their comprehensive exams now have a number of tools at their disposal. First, the department has created a Comprehensive Exam Study Guide, which gives sample questions and answers. The guide can currently be found at:

Second, we have developed two online tools to encourage virtual group studying.

(1) The first is a listserve entitled econ-ma-comp-L. Listservs are the traditional Internet mailing lists; students could use the listserve to post questions to the members of the list, while answers would also go to interested subscribers. To subscribe to this mailing list, send an e-mail to with the following text in the body:

subscribe econ-ma-comp-L

(2) The second is a wikipage that students can use to collaborate on problems. The address of the page is The page includes some directions on the page use.

I would also be happy to reserve rooms for students to study together in on campus at the request of students. Feel free to contact me if you are interested.

Good luck!
