Today marks 10 days to the bar exam. This is a pretty significant day for you. You should be just about finished with your studies. You should know the law, understand the mechanics of the bar exam and understand how to tackle the MBE questions, the essays and the MPTs. It’s now time to start powering down a bit.

If you have studied hard and if you are physically tired, try to rest more this weekend. You do not want to enter the bar exam exhausted and physically spent. Many of you will start to have sleepless nights or have nightmares about the bar exam and your anxiety will reach higher levels. Try to compensate for your lack of sleep at night by taking some power naps. Don’t feel guilty – you’ve earned it. You want to be at your best physically and mentally and you can’t do that if you are too tired to think. So lie down on the couch and take a short nap when you need to. Meanwhile, review your outlines and do a few essays a day and an hour or two of MBE questions per day. If your state tests the MPT, write out a MPT every other day. It’s time now to reinforce what you already know. Reviewing and practicing will build your confidence that you really do know the subject matter.

Posted in Uncategorized on February 16, 2018 by barprofs

February 2018 will be the last Massachusetts bar exam ever given.  Effective July 2018, Massachusetts  will administer the Uniform Bar Exam (UBE).

The UBE consists of  the MBE Exam, two MPTs, and six 30 minute essays.

To those students who want to wait until July to take the UBE – take the step to get a Bar Professors tutor so that you will pass in July and prepare having to alter your studies to take a whole new bar exam that you are not familiar with. Pass Massachusetts in July and you will be able to transfer your scores to most of the east coast states.

Massachusetts UBE score will be 270, higher than New York, New Jersey, DC, and Connecticut (266), but the same as New Hampshire and Vermont. Maine’s passing score is 276. Rhode Island has yet to adopt the UBE.

We will be conducting UBE seminars in Massachusetts  in April 2018.  Watch for our schedule.

Please contact us to see how we can help you.

Posted in Uncategorized on February 15, 2018 by barprofs

Bar Professors Provides Private Tutoring for North Carolina, Florida, the MBE, UBE, Texas and California.  Sign up for our MBE/Essays Seminars at www.barprofessors.com.

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.

Posted in Uncategorized on February 14, 2018 by barprofs

Bar Professors Provides Private Tutoring for North Carolina, Florida, the MBE, UBE, Texas and California.  Sign up for our MBE/Essays Seminars at www.barprofessors.com.

Remember to read the call of the question first. Then read the fact pattern with the call of the question in mind, highlighting or making notes as you read. Do not read the fact pattern like you would read a novel.  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.

The February 2018 Bar Exam: 2 Weeks to the Bar Exam

Posted in Uncategorized on February 13, 2018 by barprofs

Bar Professors Provides Private Tutoring for North Carolina, Florida, the MBE, UBE, Texas and California.  Sign up for our MBE/Essays Seminars at www.barprofessors.com.

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.

The February 2018 Bar Exam: The Fact Pattern on the MBE

Posted in Uncategorized on February 12, 2018 by barprofs

Bar Professors Provides Private Tutoring for North Carolina, Florida, the MBE, UBE, Texas and California.  Sign up for our MBE/Essays Seminars at www.barprofessors.com.

After you have read the call of the question, you now must read the fact pattern.

Do not read the fact pattern like you were reading a novel. You must read the fact pattern critically. Absorb every word, figure out the parties and the cause of actions, making notes, if you have to, on the side of the examination page. If you see dates and numbers, make sure you highlight them or write them down. An abundance of dates probably means something important, especially with contracts and formation. Sometimes property questions are so convoluted, making a tiny map of who own what can help you understand the fact pattern.

After you read the fact pattern, re-read the call of the question to make sure that you understand what the call of the question is asking you now that you’ve read the fact pattern. If you need to, you may want to again look at the fact pattern to make sure you understand what is being asked before you examine the multiple choice answers.

Remember, you have 1.8 minutes for each question. You must read quickly and carefully.
