The July 2018 Bar Exam: Keep Studying and Practicing Questions

Studying for the bar is more like a marathon than a sprint. Compare it to your favorite sport that you play. Do you remember how hard it was to pick it up in the beginning? You had to keep at it and practice every day before you started to improve and get better at your game. You worked at that game until you became a true proficient at it.

That game you mastered long ago is similar to how you must master and pass the bar exam. Every day you chip away at the large amount of material, taking manageable bites until you have mastered that bite and go onto the next one. As someone has once said, how do you eat an elephant – with one bite at a time. In other words, take smaller sections of the vast material, learn it and then take another section of the bar exam and learn that section, until, before you know it, you have learned the law, practiced your questions and are ready to sit for the bar exam.

Always stay in the moment of that day, because if you look too far ahead, you will waste precious time worrying about the large amount of material you must learn or how fast the time is ticking before the bar exam.

Taking the bar exam is not a sprint. You cannot do everything in one day. Do not drive yourself to exhaustion thinking that you must skip meals, skip the gym, skip sleeping in order to prepare yourself for the bar exam. You cannot run down your body or your mind. Take regular breaks so that you can come back refreshed and ready to learn.

Remember, it was the tortoise that won the race, and not the hare. And to quote the tortoise, “slowly does it every time”.
