Today is the bar exam.  Relax, be confident and do your thing.  You have studied hard for this day and you will perform to the best of your ability.  Tonight, go back to your home or to your hotel  and rest.  Don’t do anymore studying for the MBE.  Eat, watch a little television and then go to sleep.  You will be so tired, you will be asleep before your head hits your pillow.  But it will be a well earned rest.  Good luck to everyone.  Keep believing in yourself.  This is the first day of your life as an attorney.

You are almost to the finish line.  Get ready today by relaxing and being confident in your abilities.  You have been preparing for your chance to be a lawyer for 3 years or more.  You can do this.  Go to your hotel room and  try to have a quiet, restful day.  No upsets and no panic  is allowed.  Review your essay notes today, get to bed early and relax.  Even if you can’t sleep, lie down  with the lights off and get some rest.

Wake up early on Tuesday, get to the exam site in plenty of time to get registered and kick the stuffings out this bar. Do well, my friends.  You can do this.

2 days to the February 2013 Bar Exam: The Monday Before the Bar Exam

Posted in Uncategorized on February 24, 2013 by barprofs

Take Monday off so you can rest and be alert during the exam.  Keep the final day low key and try not to think about the exam.  If you are staying at a hotel, get to your hotel early, check in and relax.   Keep your anxiety under control and you’ll be fine.  Work on being calm and collected.

The Night Before the Exam

Eat small meals on Monday – you want to eat something that gives you some strength but nothing that you know can make you feel sick.  You know your own body, so play it smart.  Avoid anything that makes you feel queasy.  Don’t drink alcohol, even if you think it will calm your nerves – you do not want to be foggy Tuesday morning.

The night before the exam is the one time you may want to read a little material or study because you probably will have trouble sleeping on Monday night.   Try reading a bar outline.  If you can’t fall asleep, just lie there.  Don’t try to do extra studying, just rest.  If you can’t fall asleep, don’t get out of bed, pace, watch television, play on the internet or exercise.  You do not want to do anything that will keep your mind active.  You want to keep your mind at rest, even if your body can’t rest.

The Day of the Exam

Eat a small breakfast the morning of the bar exam so you have enough fuel to keep going.  Don’t drink too much that it causes frequent restroom visits.

Leave your cellphone at the hotel or in the car.  Do not bring it into the site.  You will be kicked out of the bar if your phone rings.

Also important is your lunch.  Avoid heavy foods that will make you sleepy.   Again, limit your drink intake to avoid frequent restroom breaks.

During Your Breaks

Do not talk to anyone about the exam during your breaks. Inevitably someone will want to talk about the bar and inevitably that person put down something different from what you did.  Do not second guess yourself by rehashing the exam.

Make sure you have a positive outlook.  You’ve done hundreds of practice questions by now.  You can do this.  You will pass.  Good luck to all.

3 days before the February 2013 Bar Exam: Powering Down This Weekend

Posted in Uncategorized on February 23, 2013 by barprofs

One of the most important factors in your performance on the bar exam is going to be your stamina – to sit for 3 hours at a stretch, with no breaks, concentrating solely on the bar exam will be quite an endeavor.  You need to remain focused and energized throughout the bar exam in order for you to do your best work.

First, you need to catch up on your rest and start powering down on your studying this weekend.  Try to have a less stressful couple of days.  Put in study time, but also sleep, rest and relax.  You have done your preparation and now it’s time to get in the game, mentally and physically.

You will be nervous this weekend, but try to contain your anxiety – you have studied hard and you are ready.  Review your materials, go over your outlines, write out an essay or two to keep in practice and also work on some MBE questions – making sure you read the explanations of why the answer choices are right or wrong.  Don’t let doubt creep into your thinking.  You must be confident – you know you will pass.  Good luck.
