It is now 6 days to the bar exam. Your job today, along with continuing to practice your exam techniques, is to think about consistency. In all the bar exam scores I have read, I have rarely seen an up and down score, with a student doing great in one subject and horrible in another subject. i.e., a 10 in property, a 20 in torts. Instead, there is a consistency of scores across the board. The student is routinely good in all the subjects, or routinely bad in the subjects. Your objective is, of course, to perform consistently well across the spectrum of subjects and across the tasks you must do in order to pass the bar exam.

How do you perform consistently well in all subjects? Your consistency started with your study plan, when you first began this bar exam process. Hard work always demands a consistency of its own in your thoughts, purpose and action over that long period of study time and your sense of purpose has been the most important aspect of your life, these past 2 months. Every day you approached your bar exam studies with the steadiness of an athlete in training. In just a few days from now, all of your hard work will pay off because you dedicated your time and effort to consistent study. Like that athlete, you will win your race.

With that consistency of study time and steadfastness, you walk into the bar exam with a sense of security and confidence that you will pass the bar exam.

Your goal for this last week is to keep your focus while you solidify your knowledge of the black letter law and improve your timing. The week before the exam is a time when you should be cool, collected and confident.

Don’t let anyone or anything distract you this week. It’s not worth it. You only have a week left to go and you can relax later,

Remember to take care of your body and mind. This means eating well, getting some sleep and working on self-confidence.

As to practical things, make sure you have confirmed your travel plans or hotel stay, make sure you have packed what you need to take with you for the bar exam, including your admission ticket, your identification, your watch, if allowed, making sure your examsoft works, etc.

Now that you know the law, make sure your timing is correct, i.e. complete 17 MBE questions in 30 minutes; 34 MBE questions in an hour and complete an essay in the time allotted for your jurisdiction.

It isn’t uncommon to start running out of energy this week. So take some breaks to energize yourself. You need to keep your mind focused on bar material. Your focus is critical to success.

Today marks 8 days to the bar exam. Hopefully, this weekend, you caught up on any sleep you have been missing. You need to be physically well and fit. You need to be sharp on the days of the bar exam and you can’t be smart when you are exhausted. Keep that in mind this week. If you need to take a cat nap, go ahead and take it. Meanwhile, keep on your bar exam schedule. Start studying at 9 am for a 3 hour stretch. Take an hour break and study again for another 3 hour stretch. It will be up to you whether you want to study longer. If you feel you need to, go ahead and review your notes or essays at night, but don’t study night and day. You will only tire yourself out. Try to keep your nerves under control.

Think about today and what you need to accomplish today only. This technique should help you not think too much about next week.

The July 2019 Bar Exam: The Skills For Factual Analysis

In every essay question or MBE question, there are different kinds of facts you need to be aware of. You have the background facts and the legally significant facts.

We know that the background facts help put the questions into context and makes for a more coherent fact pattern. But you must recognize the differences between background facts and legally significant facts. Background facts are there to put the whole fact pattern together. But do not mistake legally significant facts for just background noise. You must be able to see and understand those legally significant facts that enable you to trigger issues in your mind. For example, if the fact pattern reads, “defendant screamed and called the plaintiff stupid”, you are probably looking at a legally significant fact that should trigger your issue of defamation or even negligent infliction of emotional distress. You can then key into the issue presented, writing down all the elements of defamation or NIED, making sure that you blend the elements of defamation with the facts you just read. This is critical reading in a nutshell.

These skills make you a better test taker and you will be successful in finding your issues for discussion. Don’t ever just skim the words or read the fact pattern like you would a novel. This will not help you find your legally significant facts.

The July 2019 Bar Exam: Practice Your Timing

We all know that you must complete your essays or MBE in that specific 3 hour window. If you have not done so yet, it is time to practice your timing. You must be able to sustain that pace.

As you practice, keep that 3 hour pace in mind. It is imperative that you finish all questions. You do not want to short-change any essay or MBE question. You do not want to leave any questions unanswered or unread and lose valuable points. As you know, even 1 point or 2 points can mean the difference between passing and failing.

How do you build up your time and accuracy? In the beginning of this process, start with doing an essay or two (depending on the length of time you get from your state for your essays), or a block of MBE questions for 1 hour. Then increase those essays, MBE to 2 hours, then, finally, you should be able to do a set of your state’s essays or the MBE in that 3 hour block of time. In addition, thrown in a complete MPT set to work on, if your state tests the MPT.

You must get comfortable and condition yourself to sitting for 3 hours, working on MBE or essay questions or the MPT, without losing your focus or concentration. In these last couple of weeks, prior to the bar exam, you should be working on 3 hour blocks for the MBE, essays and MPT.

The July 2019 Bar Exam: 2 Weeks to the Bar Exam

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.
