Title: Bar Exam Study + 40 hour work week = H E L L
Post by: NoUsername on June 08, 2008, 03:20:59 PM
Anyone else doing this?  Or studying for the bar period?  I need someone to commiserate with.

I a little less that half way done with the substance, with three weeks left at the end to review and do practice tests.  But I have been pulling 10-15 hour days for two weeks, not sure if I can keep up this schedule.

Thanks.

I thought most firms don't have you start until long after the Bar is done? It doesn't seem like the best idea to work and do bar review at the same time, unless you can fit in a ton of studying on weekends. Any way you can get some time off work?

I am working for the .gov right now, and I haven't told my supervisor that I am even taking the Bar.  It would be a strong hint that I might not stick around.

The plus side is that my job isn't at all contingent on passing.

Oh god...you poor individual.  I'm studying for the bar now; I think I'm nearing the halfway point for BarBri, and I'll have about 2 1/2 or 3 weeks before the exam to study.  I hate it, but can't imagine what studying AND working is like.  It's bad enough when studying for the Bar essentially IS your job.

Did you do Barbri's home study?  I just couldn't afford that.  They quoted me $4600 up front, then $500 back when I return the Ipod.  I ended up buying "The Study Group" home study course.  Its 53 substantive assignments, which they said would take 3-6 hours a piece.  For me its taking 6-10 hours a piece, mainly because I am taking such meticulous notes.

Today I have been studying for about 5 hours, and I'm only half way done with the assignment.

Barbri sucks!  I think I have 5 weeks left, then 2 weeks of study.  I hate every moment of it.  3 to 4 hours everday in lecture, and then 5 to 7 after that doing notes and practice problems.  Not to mention the 7 hours I have spent this weekend going over my overly long notes.  This sucks!  I can't imagine trying to work at the same time.

I agree that barbri sucks.  I've been pretty underwhelmed by their state essay testing booklet which seems to have "model" answers that are completely wrong. Combine that with the bad customer service and I oftentimes wonder what I am paying $2,600 for.

Well, if it makes you feel better I haven't done a single practice essay yet.

I would feel a lot better if I had all day every day to work on this. 

What states are you all taking?

I'm taking Virginia. 

I find the barbri materials to be ok.  The problem I have is there is very little guidance on what you need to study.  I go to lecture, get 60 plus pages of notes for a subject, then I am told to weed out the "unnecessary" items.  These will be my lovely study notes.  Really?  How much should I take out?  Is 15 pages of outline too little or too much for the 80 pages of handout notes from class?  It is aggravating considering the amount of money we paid for this course.  But, if I pass, I am sure I will sing their praises.  Right now, I am just in bitching mode.

I haven't done a single essay yet really, and have done  maybe 7 or so sets of the MBE questions in specific subjects.

7 sets of how many questions?

My schedule tells me to do sets of 100, but I haven't been doing that.  I am doing just enough to get the hang of it, and then moving on. 

My plan is to get through the substance having done a few practice questions, but with three weeks left over to kill to do an insane amount of practice questions.  I am going to drop all work with three weeks to go, and do an ungodly amount of review and practice questions.

Kilroy, I am taking Virginia too.

Like I said, I did another course, not Barbri.  I am feeling very comfortable on MBE stuff and not so great about the virginia stuff, which is crappy considering the 60/40 split.

7 sets of 17 or 18 questions, so not a lot.   :-[  I probably should be doing more, and am beginning to feel like a slacker for not doing essays.

But your approach is pretty much my approach.  For the next 3 weeks, we're still covering a lot of substantive stuff in my BarBri class, doing the recommended "review" set of questions, and then for July, when substantive classes are pretty much over, really ramping up the essays and MBE practice.

For me, if I was doing a ton of essays and MBEs now, and then tried to ramp things up in July, I'd just get burnt out.

Anyways, if you're doing alright with the MBE stuff, I'm sure you'll be fine.  I find myself being completely comfortable with MBE topics, and just unfamiliar w/ my state stuff.  I think it will just take a bit longer for that stuff to gel.

And good luck surviving until you can take time off work!

I'm doing Bar/Bri self study. I am so behind on my schedule already, its not even funny. Keeping up with the lecturer schedule is the hardest, because it takes me an hour or two to read both the MS outline and the PA outline and then condense the two into a single outline for myself (The process of making an outline allows me to memorize the material). It took me nearly a week to do evidence and criminal law. So, now I am way behind. This blows.

Here is one thing I find unsettling:

The Bar Examiners in VA don't send you anything until July; no instructions, no confirmation of complete application, nothing.  I sent my application in certified mail, and with a return post card which they mailed back to me, so I know they received it.  But I still wish I could recieve something that says "you are scheduled to take the exam on July 28 and 29..."

I mean, we are talking about an administrative branch of the government.  I could completely see how someone could recieve a letter in July, after studying for two months, that says: "your application was stapled instead of paperclipped; accordingly your application has been rejected."

The ONLY consistent advice I've gotten from people that have taken the bar in the last few years (at least in GA) is to absolutely DO NOT try to stick to the BarBri schedule.  It's completely inhuman, and if you do, you'll completely burn out by the time the bar rolls around.

For me, I find the big outlines completely worthless - there's no way in hell I'd EVER remember ALL of that friggen material.  I'm pretty much working solely off the lecture handouts/workbook that I do in the lectures, and then I go to conviser to review after class - I focus mostly on the study/exam tips and the charts, and skim over the text.  I also look at the state law distinctions.

Don't stress yourself out for not staying on the BarBri schedule - seriously, 12 hours a day, every day for 2 months is grueling, and I have yet to find anyone who was able to maintain that schedule.

Thank GOODNESS for this thread!  I thought I was the ONLY one who was having trouble focusing and actually writing out the practice essays.  I've written 3-4 essays, but I don't think my writing them is helping me learn the substantive law, despite what BarBri says.  Therefore, I'm mostly now just reading the essays and taking mental notes of the issues, and then I read the sample answers.  I find that I'm learning the substantive law MUCH better doing this, and I'm only studying 3 hours a day outside of the 3.5-hour BarBri lectures. 

One thing's for sure:  I cannot imagine having to work while studying for the bar, too.  So, my hat's off to all of you who ARE working during this extremely stressful time.  Good luck to you...

I'm doing NJ and PA, and basically we have 3-4 essays assigned each day, which according to the guide, should take 4 hours. I've been trying to make outlines of how I would answer the question and compare it to the model answer. Ultimately, I feel like I'm not doing great on the multiple choice b/c I'm not spending enough time actually studying the material and instead am focusing on trying to finish all the assigned work.

Do you think its wise for me to cut out doing a few essay problems?

As of tomorrow I'll be half way done with the substantive material.  I feel like this is simply too much volume to be tested in a two day closed-book exam. 

I know every licensed attorney does it, so it is doable.  But right now it just seems like such an immense task of memorization.

I'm taking NY and CT, and I have attempted to stick with the BarBri schedule; it is true what you hear - the schedule is causing me to burn out. I have completely cut out reading ANY outlines before the lecture (in fact, I barely crack open the Conviser unless I need help on a subject). I'm finding that doing the practice essays actually helps me cement the law in my head, and I've been making it a point to get in as many multiple choice as possible.

I have to admit, I'm getting a bit freaked out.

You know, quite a few of my friends who passed said that they studied only the workbook and they passed.  Yes, they hardly ever looked at the Conviser.  So, if we can just focus on the material in the workbook, that should be more than enough to pass.  For this reason, I hardly ever read the outlines in the Conviser cover-to-cover.

I bought materials from "The Study Group" because they were a lot cheaper than Barbri's.

I am really starting to regret it with this VA Real Property assignement.  The book is just completely unclear, ambiguous, and contradictory in a lot of places.  Many places it looks like someone with a good understanding of the law wrote something down and never looked back to see if it would be clear to someone who is trying to learn VA law for the first time.

For example, as to adverse possession and tolling of time for infancy or mental illness it says "The maximum period, regardless of disability, is 25 years after the right has first acrued."  Does this mean that the total time, including the tolling time and the running time, or does it mean only the tolling time?  And what "right" acruing are they talking about?  Adverse possession isn't a "right" at all until all the requirements have been met, including the time period, after which the tolling of time is irrelevant.

For what it is worth, here is my bar advice. Do the all assigned MBE questions every day. Plan everything else around that, but under no circumstance ever cut out MBE questions. I did all all the bar/bri MBEs assigned each day and 50 pmbr questions each day. Of all the crap I had to do, answering MC questions and going over the answers is where I learned and remembered the most. Remember, you are not learning torts, property. etc. in bar review, you are learning how to take a test on torts, property, etc.

Also, for anyone who either signed up for pmbr or bought the pmbr 3-day books, that practice test was spot on for how I did on the actual bar exam, almost to a point. I took the test but did not attend the review, I found it more efficient to simply go over the answers myself.

I would say the same for Essay, but the essays are different in terms of substance and weight in every state so you have to use you judgment.

The more I study, the more I realize one thing: this is completely f-ing ridiculous.  How is it in any way practical or necessary to give someone a two day closed book exam on over 20 subjects?!?

Imagine a college professor coming into class on the first day and saying "at the end of this course you will be tested on calculus, physics, biology, chemistry, sociology, psychology, political science, french, spanish, japanese, chinese, american history, european history, world history, geography, arabic, religious studies, and rocket science.  This exam will be closed book."

I'm taking NY and NJ...

Does anyone have the feeling that the actual bar exam won't be as hard as Barbri's practice MBE and essay questions?

I remember studying for the MPRE through Barbri's lecture, review book, and practice questions and thinking "there is no way I'm going to pass this thing." When I took the MPRE in Aug 07, it seemed so much easier than the practice questions and, like most people I know, I ended up scoring well above every state's minimum passing score. Perhaps the bar exam will prove to be a similar experience...

I've heard from people that Barbri is a big "psych-out" of sorts, and that PMBR is more "realistic" with their expectations in regards to student workload. I felt the same way about the MPRE as well. I kinda half studied the material for the MPRE and scored a 100. While I was taking the Barbri practice tests for the MPRE, I was getting just enough questions correct for a passing score.

At this point, I'm extremely discouraged with my performance on practice essays and multiple choice quesitons. I'm probably averaging about a 10/18 on the individual MBE sets for pretty much every topic (better in evidence, worse in torts), and have scored a 2.6/6 and a 10.5/20 for my NJ and PA graded essays, well below the passing mark. People who have taken the bar keep telling me that you hit a point where everything just "clicks"...unfortunately I haven't hit that point yet. Maybe I should stop dicking around on this site.

Well, for Georgia, the essay questions are the real GA essay exams - I don't think they're bad, it's just that I simply don't KNOW anything really (or I don't feel like I do, anyway).  But they answers are written by BarBri (they try to tell you they're "real" answers, but they lie!), and they make you feel completely incompetent, making you think there's no way in hell you could ever write an answer like that.

But for the MBE questions, I'm sort of the opposite; I worry they're too easy, and for the little I know, I'm getting far too many right.  I've looked through the PMBR books I got on eBay, adn the few questions I've done out of it are WAY harder than the Bar/Bri questions.  I'm thinking the real thing may be somewhere in between.

I too am discouraged about my performance on my MBE practice sets.  I'm mostly getting 11/18 correct, which is approx 65% correct.  Although that is considered just passing, I don't want to be "just passing."  I want to be getting 70% correct.  Regarding my graded essays, I've only received one of them back, and the one I did get back, I failed but just barely (by 3 points; got a 72 but you need a 75).  The worst part about the comment on the essay?  It said "although you have a good grasp of substantive law, your organization needs work."  In other words, even if you KNOW the law, you can still fail the essays!  Am I the only one who is disconcerted by this?  Since when is organization more important than actually knowing the damn law?  Oy vey...

Hey unlv -  I wouldn't necessarily take the Bar Bri graders words as gospel.  They've got the same degree as you do and they've likely passed exactly one more bar exam than you have.  You'll be an "expert" too come August.  I also think they're hired to be ultra-critical.  I "failed" multiple Bar Bri exams and passed the CA bar on the first attempt.  I found comparing my essays to the model answers to be a much better indicia of my performance...

With 5 weeks to go till the bar (right?), I wouldn't be too discouraged by the MBE practice sets. First, I think the MBE practice questions were generally harder than the real exam. Secon, the key at this point is were your trending, rather than were you are at. As long as your scores generally improve as you go on, you're fine. I was at 50% for a while and till did much better than I had too on the MBE.

My personal opinion is that Barbri scares you so that you'll shell out that extra $200 for their essay advantage course.  Whatever. I'm not biting.  Also, a difficult thing for most people to conceptualize is that passing the bar exam is not the same thing as doing well in a law school class.  You either pass it or you don't....it matters not whether you scored in the top 10%. 

I'm doing about 20 MBE questions a day at this point, and nothing else (besides actually showing up at the barbri lectures).  Starting next week, I'm going to start going over an essay or two every few days and bump up my MBE to 30-40, and progressively increase from there.  And I find that it's good to randomize the questions so that the topics are mixed (I use the computer program that Barbri has).

But, yeah, it's pretty depressing to only get 50% of the barbri questions right.  I"m starting to get 60-65% correct now, so I feel like I am improving.

I haven't done any practice essays yet.  I am trying to get through the substance with three weeks left to go, and then do essays.  I do MBE questions after I finish that topic, and I have been passing comfortably, but I don't feel like its accurate since I just finished that subject and all the questions are segregated.  I think I may score lower when its six subjects at once.

Actually, I have a little more than 6 weeks left until the bar, although I should say I have only 5 weeks, since the last week before the bar, I'm going out of town to actually have fun for the first time in 4 years (since law school started).  I must say that I like the Essay Advantage course a lot: their advice on structuring your essay is top notch and they tell you what specific areas in each subject are ALWAYS tested, as well as those subjects that are rarely or never tested.  I find this extremely useful, for it is simply impossible to memorize EVERYTHING you need to know in detail...
