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 firstname.lastname@example.org with the following text in the body:
(2) The second is a wikipage that students can use to collaborate on problems. The address of the page is http://au-econ-comptime.wikispaces.com/. 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.
