A friend of mine is studying like crazy right now getting ready for her comprehensive exams for graduate school. Now, I'm getting ready to wrap up my graduate work, which I'm proud to say I've only taken one test in 44 credit hours of class. I have written my fair share of papers. And my final paper will be about 75 pages. All that to say I have no idea how stressful preparing for this test actually is for her.
I do love a fun analogy though, so I came up with one for her.
