What can you do to prepare ahead?

by | November 17, 2008

Running a marathon is all about preparedness. Practicing by running the miles, but also

You train, trying to practice all that could happen during an event. You ask others about their events, to learn from them.

Of whom do you ask questions about preparing for the doctoral journey?

And you don’t know what is going to happen the day of the event.

Once you get into the comprehensive exam stage and the dissertation stages, you draw on the experiences of the coursework. You may need to seek out related activities, so that you can be best prepared:

Self assess your skills and knowledge. Practice those skills.
Ask questions to find out if what is missing in your practice, then practice those skills.
