So, I’ll be honest with you here: I haven’t really read ANYTHING other than bar exam materials this week.
Earthy-Toasty-Spicy’s list of “You Know You are Taking the Bar Exam When…”
Nuts and Boalts’ Five Rules for Studying for the Bar
The Lawyer Mentor’s Don’t Freak Out about the Bar Exam
In my own personal experience, studying for the bar is 50% believing in yourself and your test-taking abilities, 30% studying, and 20% question practice. Starting right now, I have nine full days left to prepare for the test. Unlike most people I talk to, I am very good at taking time for myself and much worse at buckling down and hitting the books. I’m not a stress-tester, and I wish I had that crazy adrenaline rush that made me stick to the books like crazy. Until it comes, I am going to follow the plan below, kind of:
Tonight: Review my answers from the practice test I am currently taking. [Oh yeah, I’m on my lunch break — did I forget to mention that? :)] And, if I have time, finish Family Law flashcards/studying.
Sunday: Take it easy. Spend the day and afternoon with Hunter, cleaning up, doing any laundry, and baking some goodies for the week. Sunday night: watch the new episode of In Plain Sight and review family law flashcards.
Monday: Evidence, Criminal Law and Procedure
Tuesday: Torts, Civil Procedure, Business Associations
Wednesday: Contracts, Family Law,
Thursday: Constitutional Law, Contracts, Professional Responsibility
Friday: Property, Evidence
Tuesday: TEST DAY
Wednesday: TEST DAY
