Assunto:  Come/get to grips with
 
Mensagem:  According to Concise Oxford English Dictionary/Thesaurus, both 'get to grips with' and 'come to grips with' are all right and bear the same meanings: 1) engage in combat with; 2) begin to deal with or understand. Deivis' case is of course related to the second meaning.

I just wouldn't know if the expression is most commonly used in some parts with 'get' and in others with "come". Maybe you are in the 'come part', Tom, and the fellows who created Deivis' test are in the 'get part'. Or that's bullshit.
