1 week to the Bar Exam: Keep Your Focus

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, if allowed, making sure your examsoft works, 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.

8 Days to the Bar Exam: Keep Your Bar Exam Day Schedule

Today marks 8 days to the bar exam. Hopefully, this weekend, you caught up on any sleep you have been missing. You need to be physically well and fit. You need to be sharp on the days of the bar exam and you can’t be smart when you are exhausted. Keep that in mind this week. If you need to take a cat nap, go ahead and take it. Meanwhile, keep on your bar exam schedule. Start studying at 9 am for a 3 hour stretch. Take an hour break and study again for another 3 hour stretch. It will be up to you whether you want to study longer. If you feel you need to, go ahead and review your notes or essays at night, but don’t study night and day. You will only tire yourself out. Try to keep your nerves under control.

Think about today and what you need to accomplish today only. This technique should help you not think too much about next week.

Thanking Your Loved Ones

For those students who are taking the February 2020 bar exam, take the time today to wish your loved ones a happy Valentine’s Day. Those that really love you want to see you pass the bar. Know that with certainty. Look at those that are supporting you in ways you may not even realize. Maybe your mom makes you breakfast every morning or take care of your babies before you leave to go study. Maybe your spouse is doing the heavy lifting as you study. Let them know you appreciate their support, even if they are just getting out of your way during this period before the bar exam. No person is an island. You need your family and friends during this stressful period of bar exam studying. Thank them today for supporting you through this journey.

It is Not Time to Power Down – Keep Your Focus and Stay Motivated

In these last couple of weeks, it is not time to power down. Instead, keep your focus and stay motivated, along with your belief that you will pass. Stay positive.

You have studied day-in and day-out for weeks, if not months. You have passed long hours as you have struggled to learn, review and practice. Sometimes you wonder why you are putting yourself through this misery.

That is why you must stay motivated. What is your incentive to continue studying and to pass the bar exam? You went through 4 years of colleges and the last 3 years going to law school to come to this juncture in your life. Among a desire to do good for others and the love of the law, you went to law school mainly to provide a good living for yourself and/or for your family.

Don’t forget those reasons for why you went to law school, for why you are studying for the bar exam and why you need to pass and become the lawyer you have always wanted to be.

Motivate yourself to get through the material today, not tomorrow. Be happy about the progress you make today. Then start afresh the next day. You’ll worry about tomorrow, when it comes. Motivation comes in small bites when you are studying for the bar exam. Keep your focus – you can get a lot done in these last days.

The Bar Exam Graders Tell You How to Write a Passing Essay

A survey of bar exam graders found that the single biggest mistake students make is not responding to the call of the question.

Remember to read the call of the question first. Then read the fact pattern with the call of the question in mind. Then you want to read the call of the question again to make sure that you understand what the bar examiners are looking for. Only then, should you start to write your outline and start writing your essay. Before you turn the page to the next essay, read the call of the question one last time to make sure you answered the call of the question completely and thoroughly. Then you can move on to your next essay.

2 Weeks Until You Pass the Bar Exam

You have 2 weeks until the bar examination. Instead of spending the day getting nervous about the time, concentrate on what you have left to do.

By this time, you should have pretty much memorized as much black letter law as you can cram into your brain. It is now time to put away the books and stop studying the law.

What you need to do in these final 2 weeks to prepare yourself for the bar exam is to practice, practice, practice. You are now familiar with your state test and the MBE questions and what to expect from the bar exam.

Try to do an essay or two every day, testing yourself on a variety of subjects that you know your state tests. Do the essays under test conditions. Once you finish your essay under time constraints, spend an equal amount of time reading your essay and comparing it to the model answer. Read for comprehension, also. There might be a point of law that you did not know that you can learn from reading the model answer.

For those states who have the UBE, and California or who have performance tests, you also must include taking the time to do the performance test also. Try doing 1 performance test every other day. This way you can probably get 5 or 6 performance tests in to your practice sessions prior to the bar exam. On the days you do not do a performance test, practice your essays.

In between the essays and performance tests, you also need to work on questions for the Multistate. Try to get in at least 50-100 MBE questions per day, if you can. This way you can really be sharp when exam time comes.

Don’t waste the time to panic, but do take the time to practice. You will be more prepared than ever if you follow this schedule.

Improving Your MBE Score: The MBE Progression

To recap what we have talked about concerning the MBE, here is the list of progressions you must follow.
• Read the call of the question first.
• Read the fact pattern carefully and critically
• Try to decide the issue after you read the fact pattern and before you look at the answers.
• Once you have figured out the issue, think of the black letter law and the distinctions.
• Read the answer choices.
• Try to eliminate the answer choices, one by one, looking for errors in law or in fact or both.
• Remember that in order for the answer choice to be correct, it must be correct in all of its answer.
• After you are done with the question, let it go and go to the next answer.
