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

Posted in Uncategorized on July 28, 2013 by barprofs

Please look at our new website and new MBE Program at barprofessors.com

It is now 2 days to the bar exam. Let’s talk about what you should do the day before the exam.

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, do not pace, do not watch television, do not text, do not play on the internet, do not go on facebook, do not 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

Don’t try to study when you get up. You’ll be too nervous and your retention level will be minimal. It’s best to work on your nerves as you get dressed. Tell yourself that you know the materials and you will do well. Keep that positive attitude. Do not approach the morning of the bar like you are going to your personal execution. You are well prepared and you must believe that you will do well.

Eat a small breakfast the morning of the bar exam so you have enough fuel to keep going. Do not 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. Move forward at all times.

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

The July 2013 Bar Exam: 3 days to the Bar Exam: Powering Down This Weekend

Posted in Uncategorized on July 27, 2013 by barprofs

Please look at our new website and new MBE Program at barprofessors.com

It is now 3 days to the bar exam. This is the final weekend before you sit for the bar exam.

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.

The July 2013 Bar Exam: 4 days to the Bar Exam: Facing the Bar Exam with Confidence

Posted in Uncategorized on July 26, 2013 by barprofs

Please look at our new website and new MBE Program at barprofessors.com

It is now 4 days to the bar exam.

Part of the battle to pass the bar exam is your attitude. Don’t go into the bar with negative energy. You must have confidence in your abilities. You have to go into the bar fired up and excited. This is your future and you will conquer it. You have studied extensively, you know the information and now you will prove it when you enter the bar examination. A positive attitude is half the battle. You feel good – you do good. With confidence, you have won before you have started.

Where does confidence come from? Confidence doesn’t come out of nowhere. It’s a result of something… hours and days and weeks and years of work, dedication and training. You are ready. You will go into the bar exam prepared to pass the exam. You have studied, written essays and practiced the MBE questions – you can do no more. Your analysis is sharp and you have a great game plan. You have prepared and you are confident.

For those who are taking the bar exam as a repeat taker, do not lose your edge. Do not look back at your past failures and think you cannot pass the bar exam. Do not doubt yourself, do not be afraid that you will repeat your mistakes. You must go into the exam with confidence that you will pass the bar exam. If you doubt yourself, then indeed you stand on shaky ground. Believe that you will pass.

A student told me that this weekend, he is going to watch the movie Rocky. I thought it was a great idea. Find something inspirational for you to watch or to do. Not only will you feel good, but it can build your confidence to see someone else conquer his fears and be successful. I’ve always liked the movie Rudy – someone who wanted to go to college and play football for Notre Dame. He had many obstacles in his way including having to go to junior college before he could transfer to Notre Dame and be a walk-on to the team. The coaches kept him on the practice team because he practiced with intensity and determination even though he was too small and would likely never get into the game or play a down. Well, the last game of his senior year he got into the game, played a few downs and became the first player in Notre Dame’s history to be carried off the field in triumph. Against all odds, he became a winner – because he believed in his dreams and had the confidence to overcome his obstacles.

Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful.
