It is now 5 days to the bar exam.

During this last week before the bar exam, I have many students ask me what my prediction is for exam subjects. Anyone who claims to predict what will be on the bar exam is just guessing. I remember one year, a lecturer on the bar exam circuit claimed that since trusts had been tested in the previous test cycle, it would not be tested again and to forget about trusts. Unfortunately, many students took that advice and freaked when they opened the exam questions on the day of the bar exam and saw that the bar examiners did in fact test trusts twice in a row. This cautionary tale is meant to be what it is – do not endlessly search for predictions or to take anyone’s predictions as gospel. You have prepared for any eventuality – in any subject that is tested. Don’t try to second guess yourself and your preparation or to find a shortcut in your studies. This weekend, make sure you review every subject that is tested in your state. Only then will you be thoroughly prepared, with or without, any person’s prediction of what subjects will be tested on the essays.

The July 2017 Bar Exam: 6 days to the Bar Exam: Consistency on the Bar Exam

It is now 6 days to the bar exam. Your job today, along with continuing to practice your exam techniques, is to think about consistency. In all the bar exam scores I have read, I have rarely seen an up and down score, with a student doing great in one subject and horrible in another subject. i.e., a 10 in property, a 30 in torts. Instead, there is a consistency of scores across the board. The student is routinely good in all the subjects, or routinely bad in the subjects. Your objective is, of course, to be perform consistently well across the spectrum of subjects and across the tasks you must do in order to pass the bar exam.

How do you perform consistently well in all subjects? Your consistency started with your study plan, when you first began this bar exam process. Hard work always demands a consistency of its own in your thoughts, purpose and action over that long period of study time and your sense of purpose has been the most important aspect of your life, these past 2 months. Every day you approached your bar exam studies with the steadiness of an athlete in training. In just a few days from now, all of your hard work will pay off because you dedicated your time and effort to consistent study. Like that athlete, you will win your race.

With that consistency of study time and steadfastness, you walk into the bar exam with a sense of security and confidence that you will pass the bar exam.

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.

The July 2017 Bar Exam: 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.

The July 2017 Bar Exam: Practice Your Timing

Posted in Uncategorized on July 13, 2017 by barprofs

We all know that you must complete your essays or MBE in that specific 3 hour window.  If you have not done so yet, it is time to practice your timing. You must be able to sustain that pace.

As you practice, keep that 3 hour pace in mind. It is imperative that you finish all questions. You do not want to short-change any essay or MBE question. You do not want to leave any questions unanswered or unread and lose valuable points. As you know, even 1 point or 2 points can mean the difference between passing and failing.

How do you build up your time and accuracy? In the beginning of this process, start with doing an essay or two (depending on the length of time you get from your state for your essays), or a block of MBE questions for 1 hour.  Then increase those essays, MBE to 2 hours, then, finally, you should be able to do a set of your state’s essays or the MBE in that 3 hour block of time.  In addition, thrown in a complete MPT set to work on, if your state tests the MPT.

You must get comfortable and condition yourself to sitting for 3 hours, working on MBE or essay questions or the MPT, without losing your focus or concentration. In these last couple of weeks, prior to the bar exam, you should be working on 3 hour blocks for the MBE, essays and MPT.

The July 2017 Bar Exam: The Essay Writer

An important piece of information that you need is knowing what kind of essay writer you are. The next time you write an essay, look at your writing critically. What kind of essay writer are you?

There are many types of essay writers, but here are the most common categories:

All facts and no law: These writers just regurgitate the facts without legal analysis. All law and no facts: These writers just tell us the law, without blending the facts. No knowledge of the rule definitions: These writers do not know the black letter law. No knowledge of factual analysis: These writers do not blend the law with the factual analysis.

Where do you stand on this list? Make sure you know the answer, because your job, right now and up to the bar exam is to correct your essay writing and turn your weakness into a strength.

Most states want you to write an IRAC type of essay. You want to identify the issue, set out the complete rule definition, analyze your facts with the law, and then you want to conclude. You can’t go wrong with that simple formula.
