Five minutes? Try 20-30% of your allotted time per question. If you are diving right in and just typing everything you know about the law, then you are way off track. Take your time, think about what you want to say, outline it, and say it.
Take 5 minutes and outline it first!
I have the hardest time outlining answers. I read the passage, take notes in the margins and then move into my overall structure. Some things are easy (negligence starts with duty.... then breach...), but I'm so used to "free writing" on my laptop that I tend to organize in my head, write and then move around chunks of copy. Anyone have good tips on outlining? My handwriting is terrible.
