Studying for comprehensive exam.

  1. Aug 6, 2011 #1

    My exam to qualify for PhD status is coming up soon and I'm intending to retreat into the wilderness for some serious focussed study.

    I was wondering if anyone had any tips or suggestions for how I should approach this study. I intend to spend the last week on the past papers but for the weeks before: How much time should be spend in making sure my knowledge is sound and how much in following through some solutions to graduate level problems to get my 'physics juices' flowing?

    Another concern is that the past papers I have don't come with any form of answer even numeric. How should I know that I did something right?
