The July 2016 Bar Exam: 6 weeks until the Bar Exam: Where Should You Be Today?

Bar Professors Provides Private Tutoring for North Carolina, Florida, the MBE, MEE, UBE New York, Texas and California. Sign up for our MBE/Essays Seminars at www.barprofessors.com.

There are 6 weeks until the bar exam. Where should you be today?

Make sure that you follow your work routine

By this time you should have set a realistic work schedule that allows for lecture time, review time, practice time and relaxation time.
By this time you should know where your strengths and weakness are. While there is still time, try to include more study time for your weaker subjects, but do not ignore your stronger areas.

Maintain your concentration level by varying your study activities, i.e. if you are reading an outline and losing focus, start practicing questions.

Know Your Law

At this stage in your studying, you should be trying to commit to memory the black letter law. You need to master the substantive law presented in the bar review courses but how you go about it is up to you. Knowing the law means that you internalize the material in such a way that you truly “own” it and can spit it out on demand. This does not mean that you recognize the material or it seems familiar to you. The bar exam requires you to know the rules with precision and specificity and to have a solid understanding of the rules.

Continue to do practice questions, essays and performance tests.

Know Your State Bar Exam

You should know your bar exam like the back of your hand. Everyone must prepare for the MBE, but you should know the ins and outs of your state exam. What are the length of the essays, do you have a performance exam, what areas are the most tested? You should know all of those questions so you can tailor your studies to your state exam. Don’t overlook this very important component of the exam as it may save you from failing. Too often, students get so overwhelmed by the MBE that they don’t study hard enough for the state portion of their exam.
The importance thing is to keep on your schedule.

Bar Professors provides one-on-one substantive lectures on all subjects with practice questions and critiques, and methods and procedures to improve your essay and MBE scores.
