The July 2014 Bar Exam: 2 days to the Bar Exam: The Monday Before the Bar Exam

Please look at our essay writing, MBE programs and Bar Exam Tutors at www.barprofessors.com.

It is now 2 days to the bar exam. Let’s talk about what you should do the day before the exam.

Take Monday off so you can rest and be alert during the exam. Keep the final day low key and try not to think about the exam. If you are staying at a hotel, get to your hotel early, check in and relax. Keep your anxiety under control and you’ll be fine. Work on being calm and collected.

The Night Before the Exam

Eat small meals on Monday – you want to eat something that gives you some strength but nothing that you know can make you feel sick. You know your own body, so play it smart. Avoid anything that makes you feel queasy. Don’t drink alcohol, even if you think it will calm your nerves – you do not want to be foggy Tuesday morning.

The night before the exam is the one time you may want to read a little material or study because you probably will have trouble sleeping on Monday night. Try reading a bar outline. If you can’t fall asleep, just lie there. Don’t try to do extra studying, just rest. If you can’t fall asleep, don’t get out of bed, do not pace, do not watch television, do not text, do not play on the internet, do not go on facebook, do not exercise. You do not want to do anything that will keep your mind active. You want to keep your mind at rest, even if your body can’t rest.

The Day of the Exam

Don’t try to study when you get up. You’ll be too nervous and your retention level will be minimal. It’s best to work on your nerves as you get dressed. Tell yourself that you know the materials and you will do well. Keep that positive attitude. Do not approach the morning of the bar like you are going to your personal execution. You are well prepared and you must believe that you will do well.

Eat a small breakfast the morning of the bar exam so you have enough fuel to keep going. Do not drink too much that it causes frequent restroom visits.

Leave your cellphone at the hotel or in the car. Do not bring it into the site. You will be kicked out of the bar if your phone rings.

Also important is your lunch. Avoid heavy foods that will make you sleepy. Again, limit your drink intake to avoid frequent restroom breaks.

During Your Breaks

Do not talk to anyone about the exam during your breaks. Inevitably someone will want to talk about the bar and inevitably that person put down something different from what you did. Do not second guess yourself by rehashing the exam. Move forward at all times.

Make sure you have a positive outlook. Be confident. You’ve done hundreds of practice questions by now. You can do this. You will pass. Good luck to all.

The July 2014 Bar Exam: 3 days to the Bar Exam: Powering Down This Weekend

Please look at our new website and new MBE Program at barprofessors.com

It is now 3 days to the bar exam. This is the final weekend before you sit for the bar exam.

One of the most important factors in your performance on the bar exam is going to be your stamina – to sit for 3 hours at a stretch, with no breaks, concentrating solely on the bar exam will be quite an endeavor. You need to remain focused and energized throughout the bar exam in order for you to do your best work.

First, you need to catch up on your rest and start powering down on your studying this weekend. Try to have a less stressful couple of days. Put in study time, but also sleep, rest and relax. You have done your preparation and now it’s time to get in the game, mentally and physically.

You will be nervous this weekend, but try to contain your anxiety – you have studied hard and you are ready. Review your materials, go over your outlines, write out an essay or two to keep in practice and also work on some MBE questions – making sure you read the explanations of why the answer choices are right or wrong. Don’t let doubt creep into your thinking. You must be confident – you know you will pass. Good luck.

The July 2014 Bar Exam: 4 days to the Bar Exam: Facing the Bar Exam with Confidence

Please look at our essay writing, MBE programs and Bar Exam Tutors at www.barprofessors.com.

It is now 4 days to the bar exam.

Part of the battle to pass the bar exam is your attitude. Don’t go into the bar with negative energy. You must have confidence in your abilities. You have to go into the bar fired up and excited. This is your future and you will conquer it. You have studied extensively, you know the information and now you will prove it when you enter the bar examination. A positive attitude is half the battle. You feel good – you do good. With confidence, you have won before you have started.

Where does confidence come from? Confidence doesn’t come out of nowhere. It’s a result of something… hours and days and weeks and years of work, dedication and training. You are ready. You will go into the bar exam prepared to pass the exam. You have studied, written essays and practiced the MBE questions – you can do no more. Your analysis is sharp and you have a great game plan. You have
prepared and you are confident.

For those who are taking the bar exam as a repeat taker, do not lose your edge. Do not look back at your past failures and think you cannot pass the bar exam. Do not doubt yourself, do not be afraid that you will repeat your mistakes. You must go into the exam with confidence that you will pass the bar exam. If you doubt yourself, then indeed you stand on shaky ground. Believe that you will pass.

A student told me that this weekend, he is going to watch the movie Rocky. I thought it was a great idea. Find something inspirational for you to watch or to do. Not only will you feel good, but it can build your confidence to see someone else conquer his fears and be successful. I’ve always liked the movie Rudy – someone who wanted to go to college and play football for Notre Dame. He had many obstacles in his way including having to go to junior college before he could transfer to Notre Dame and be a walk-on to the team. The coaches kept him on the practice team because he practiced with intensity and determination even though he was too small and would likely never get into the game or play a down. Well, the last game of his senior year he got into the game, played a few downs and became the first player in Notre Dame’s history to be carried off the field in triumph. Against all odds, he became a winner – because he believed in his dreams and had the confidence to overcome his obstacles.

Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful.

The July 2014 Bar Exam: 5 days to the Bar Exam: Essay Predictions

Please look at our essay writing, MBE programs and Bar Exam Tutors at www.barprofessors.com.

It is now 5 days to the bar exam.

During this last week before the bar exam, I have many students ask me what my prediction is for exam subjects. Anyone who claims to predict what will be on the bar exam is just guessing. I remember one year, a lecturer on the bar exam circuit claimed that since trusts had been tested in the previous test cycle, it would not be tested again and to forget about trusts. Unfortunately, many students took that advice and freaked when they opened the exam questions on the day of the bar exam and saw that the bar examiners did in fact test trusts twice in a row. This cautionary tale is meant to be what it is – do not endlessly search for predictions or to take anyone’s predictions as gospel. You have prepared for any eventuality – in any subject that is tested. Don’t try to second guess yourself and your preparation or to find a shortcut in your studies. This weekend, make sure you review every subject that is tested in your state. Only then will you be thoroughly prepared, with or without, any person’s prediction of what subjects will be tested on the essays.

The July 2014 Bar Exam: 6 days to the Bar Exam: Consistency in the Bar Exam

Please look at our essay writing, MBE programs and Bar Exam Tutors at www.barprofessors.com.

It is now 6 days to the bar exam. Your job today, along with continuing to practice your exam techniques, is to think about consistency. In all the bar exam scores I have read, I have rarely seen an up and down score, with a student doing great in one subject and horrible in another subject. i.e., a 10 in property, a 30 in torts. Instead, there is a consistency of scores across the board. The student is routinely good in all the subjects, or routinely bad in the subjects. Your objective is, of course, to be perform consistently well across the spectrum of subjects and across the tasks you must do in order to pass the bar exam.

How do you perform consistently well in all subjects? Your consistency started with your study plan, when you first began this bar exam process. Hard work always demands a consistency of its own in your thoughts, purpose and action over that long period of study time and your sense of purpose has been the most important aspect of your life, these past 2 months. Every day you approached your bar exam studies with the steadiness of an athlete in training. In just a few days from now, all of your hard work will pay off because you dedicated your time and effort to consistent study. Like that athlete, you will win your race.

With that consistency of study time and steadfastness, you walk into the bar exam with a sense of security and confidence that you will pass the bar exam.

The July 2014 Bar Exam: 1 week to the Bar Exam: Keep Your Focus

Please look at our essay writing, MBE programs and Bar Exam Tutors at www.barprofessors.com.

Your goal for this last week is to keep your focus while you solidify your knowledge of the black letter law and improve your timing. The week before the exam is a time when you should be cool, collected and confident.

Don’t let anyone or anything distract you this week. It’s not worth it. You only have a week left to go and you can relax later,

Remember to take care of your body and mind. This means eating well, getting some sleep and working on self-confidence.

As to practical things, make sure you have confirmed your travel plans or hotel stay, make sure you have packed what you need to take with you for the bar exam, including your admission ticket, your identification, your watch, etc.

Now that you know the law, make sure your timing is correct, i.e. complete 17 MBE questions in 30 minutes; 34 MBE questions in an hour and complete an essay in the time allotted for your jurisdiction.

It isn’t uncommon to start running out of energy this week. So take some breaks to energize yourself. You need to keep your mind focused on bar material. Your focus is critical to success.
