Hugs; I didn't mean to jostle a scar.
The individual histories of the various literatures are important - but, those aside, it's pretty much the case that the tools of literary analysis don't vary from literature to literature, genre to genre, or even really medium to medium. In other words, TV will do nicely, actually: if you make a point of looking out for aspects of dramatization that remind you of elements of literature, you can even count some of your TV-watching time as study time. (Advertisements are terrific for identifying bandwagon vs. endorsement and so on.)
Those tools don't much vary from state to state, either. In the sticky thread "Elmer's English resources", toward the beginning, there are some glossaries that can be helpful for most states' English-teacher tests, though they happen to have been inspired by one state's. Any term that you don't already know, look up: my favorite tool for the purpose is Answers.com, because it doesn't dredge up Web sites, it dredges up... um, answers. (These include answers from Wikipedia, which absolutely shines for this purpose.)
Somewhere in this forum there are a couple of poems posted for literary-analysis target practice. Feel free to rummage them up and play with them.
Education isn't what you know. It's what you can do (and fake, intelligently) with what you know.
