Maybe I can ask you guys this question...

I got to FAMU and I would say the MAJORITY of all our tests this pass year were MC/Essay (where if both are given the MC is 2/3). In my first semester I took  Property I, Contracts I, Torts I, Civ. Pro.I , Legal Writing I and in the Spring we had the sequels to those classes just mentioned along with Con. Law I.

I had Property II and Civ. Pro. II and the ENTIRE test was MC. The Property was 60 questions in 2 hours, mind you my Prof. used to teach for PMBR. And I had 100 questions in Civ. Pro. in 3 hours.

I think the reason why are school gives out so many MC portions is for two reasons:

1. I know I go to FAMU. Tier 4, so the demographic of students are different. So I guess they are trying to get us comfortable in taking exams with objective/subjective aspects.
2. Hey numbers don't lie! Easier to grade + lazy professors.

I actually REVIEW with PMBR questions. I bought the Red and Blue books. And I do the Red books throughout the year. And do the Blue Book just a couple of days before the Final.

I also study with P.L.I. MBE review.

So basically I study from BarPrep materials.

So I am asking the J.D.s now that are studying for the bar. Do you think FAMU exam idea is a good one since you guys have been exposed to Bar Prep materials now?

Because when you posted the question, I spotted those issues and fortunately I got the answer right.

Im anxiously waiting for you guys' answer.



Hey, I know exactly what you are going through man.  I got to Thurgood Marshall, also a 4th tier school and they put A LOT of emphasis on MC questions.  In this past year (I was a 1L), the majority of our exams were MC.  We did have some essay questions, but we didn't write hardly enough in my opinion.  The interesting thing about Thurgood is that after your professors regular final, all of the 1L's take comprehensive, 60 question MC exam in each substantive course (Civ Pro, Contracts, Torts, Property).  They are all 2 hour exams and they are absolutely crazy!  They say they are bar simulated, but part of it comes from just questions made up in the mind of a mindless professor.

I use the PMBR books as well and they helped out a lot....my two cents!

Ok just wanting to throw that in there because if you look back on BLSD history, you will see that some people have made it their business to do their own "self-prosecution" of others on this board.

lol@sleeping with the fishes. 

I am not trying to start any s**t, but please be VERY careful what information you give on this site.  You do not know who is reading, seriously.  I have already found many trails to the case that was "referenced" earlier.  Not a good look for a future law student.  Someone may take your winning the case, or what have you, as being boastful.

Add me to the community prayer list!  She is a good person and I hope she has more than a full recovery.

I agree with #1, couldn't ya'll wait until tomorrow so that I could read this in my office and be entertained.  Damn, for the second time tonight I feel like I'm living in the past.  First the term "indentured servants" and now we are back to being "colored".  Gotta love taking 3 steps back!!  lol
