It is the policy of Bar Professors to try to interview as many of our students after the bar exam. This legal information gathering enables us to process and stay current with MBE trends, questions, test taking techniques and, most importantly, areas tested. Moreover, this methodology helps us to continue to provide quality seminars and tutorials.

Our students indicated to us that these were the areas tested on the Federal Civil Procedure MBE section: Settlements, TROs, Discovery, Appeals, Default Judgments, Subject Matter Jurisdiction and Diversity, Jury and Bench Trials, Venue, Interpleader, Rule 11, Cross and Counter Claims, Personal Jurisdiction, Motions to Dismiss, and Judicial Notice.

The bar exam is over and the waiting begins. North Carolina is usually one of the first states to release its results in approximately a month. Then the states begin to roll in, one after another.

For now, take the time to relax and have fun. You deserve it. There will be enough time to fret and wait for your results.

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 or stay home and try to have a quiet, restful day. No upsets and no panic attacks are 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. Your body will thank you tomorrow during the bar exam.

Wake up early on Tuesday, get to the exam site in plenty of time to get registered and kick the stuffings out of this bar. Make sure you have a positive attitude and be confident in your abilities. Do well, my friends. You can do this.

The February 2015 Bar Exam: 2 days to the Bar Exam: The Monday Before the Bar Exam

Posted in Uncategorized on February 22, 2015 by barprofs

Sign up for our MBE Small Group One Day Workshop/Seminar in Naples and Miami at http://www.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. In Florida, no more wristwatches are allowed into the exam site.

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 February 2015 Bar Exam: 3 days to the Bar Exam: Powering Down This Weekend

Posted in Uncategorized on February 21, 2015 by barprofs

Sign up for our MBE Small Group One Day Workshop/Seminar in Naples and Miami at http://www.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 February 2015 Bar Exam: 4 days to the February 2015 Bar Exam: Essay Predictions

Posted in Uncategorized on February 20, 2015 by barprofs

Sign up for our MBE Small Group One Day Workshop/Seminar in Naples and Miami at http://www.barprofessors.com.

It is now 4 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 exam 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 last bar cycle, a bar lecturer told his students that the Florida Board of Bar Examiners would not test Commercial Paper – and if, on the off chance they did, to just throw down the words “holder in due course”. Of course, this past July, commercial paper was on the exam.

These cautionary tales are 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.
