First post

First post! As part of my New Year's resolutions, I've decided that I'm going to get a master's degree in computer science. This means either finishing my thesis or taking some comprehensive exams in 3 areas:
1) Data structures
2) Operating systems OR Numerical analysis (my choice! yea!)
3) Theory
Since my thesis is dragging because of work and I'll need to know the above for the CS GRE, why not just take the exams?

Here's the first place to stop for some CS GRE knowledge:

That has a bunch of great info.

When I studied for the CS GRE a few years ago, there were precious few studying resources. It also didn't help that I hadn't seen half the material before.

A. K. Dewdney, "The New Turing Omnibus" seems like a good review as well.

The published ETS exams are helpful, but I wouldn't rely on them.

I think the comps will be a good review of the material, but they won't give you practice answering questions in 60 seconds or less (crucial, for the GRE.)
