I am familiar with getting in shape for Jeopardy. There are enough areas of general knowledge that a player can know to target to develop a reasonable knowledge base in order to be competitive.
How then, does one prepare for Millionaire?

While Jeopardy involves general knowledge, millionaire is extremely specific.
How do you study for millionaire and how do you know what specific knowledge to focus on?
Would especially like to hear from people who have been on the show.
Thoughts?
Are there any restrictions for being on Millionaire if you've been on Jeopardy before?
No, just that there has to be a year between appearances. A number of us have been on both shows.
Read this and a weird thought crossed my mind...you appeared on more games of WWTBAM than Jeopardy. :P
