mammamaia – 2008-11-13 8:13 PM getting a jump on the time-consuming process may be a good idea, but…… if it takes you as long a time to edit and polish the book as it usually does for new writers, some of those agents you find who are currently open to new writers may no longer be… and/or some may not even be still in business… or have changed their preferences and no longer accept queries for the genre you have to offer…

Not very likely.  You reason you start researching early is so you can find stable, reliable agents who don’t flit around and change what they want.  Agents who jump around as you suggest are not ones you want, anyway.   And even if some few do change, you’ve still saved months in the process.
