9. Get friends together
give your initial presentation and invite them to grill the heck out of you. If you are going to get flustered - better to get it out of your system - and to come to the realization that you really *do* (or should) know more about your topic than anyone else in the room. Seriously, they haven't spent the last x years focused so narrowly on all of the related research as well as yours. that said - pay attention to the comments the committee members have made along the way, and their pet areas of research and be prepared to address how that intersects with your research.
