So it’s about mid-way through the second week and I am finally starting to see a glimmer of light through the darkness known as Bar Prep. I have been doing a better job of completing my MBE questions and I can see positive progress…at least in the areas of Torts and Evidence. (The beast known as Contracts is still giving me a bit of a problem.) I can now understand the importance of doing so many MBE questions. While you learn, or I guess I should say refresh, the various MBE topics with the classes, the actual questions allow you to see some of intricacies that you may not learn or understand in class. It also allows you to see the different types of questions that can be asked on the MBE. That way, hopefully, none of the types of questions will blindside you when you finally get to the test. Is anyone else seeing some light?
So today I went into work for the last time until after the Bar. I just want to say I do not understand how anyone could work and study for the bar at the same time. I went to class today from about 9am-1pm and then basically worked from 1pm-5pm. I got home and I was exhausted. I can’t imagine working a full eight hour day and then watching a lecture for two or three hours and then doing MBE/essay questions and reviewing that day’s class.
All I could muster today was Barbri Amp lectures and reviewing today’s class notes. I am going to have to start doing better tomorrow. More specifically, I will need to do a better job of working through MBE questions. I know I need to build up my endurance for doing 100 many within one sitting. I will say though that I find the Barbri Amp really helpful. At least for me, it helps me better learn the material. I would definitely recommend giving it a try if you have that option.
Here’s hoping that I do a better job of staying schedule tomorrow. How is your Bar prep going?
