I just beasted on my Contacts MBE practice exam…and by beasted, I mean I scored 76% lol. I know that may not seem like much, but it’s a big jump for me in Contracts (you’ve got to celebrate the small victories). Maybe there is hope for me in Contracts after all.
So I finished up my first week of Bar prep…and I feel like I’m already behind lol. More specifically, I feel like doing the MBE questions now is pointless because I do not remember a lot of the material well enough to properly answer the questions. I feel like I’m just spinning my wheels. Like what is the point of doing the questions if I don’t know most of the information? I guess the point is to learn by doing. As long as I take the time to review the questions and understand why I missed the correct answer, then I’m learning the subject. But it’s only the first week, so I suppose things will get better.
On another note, I modified my study schedule. Instead of doing MBEs right after class, I will review and make note cards right after class. I better retain the information if I do it that way. Making the note cards takes F O R E V E R. But I learn best through note cards, so it is a necessary evil. I know I will definitely have to do a better job of doing the MBE questions. I have not been doing my scheduled 50 MBEs a day so I will need to step it up. Plus, I haven’t even begun to touch the essays. I hope this Bar prep thing gets easier…and more productive.
