I'm planning to take the NY bar in July, but I'm currently residing outside of NY. Also barbri doesn't offer NY bar classes here. So I'm stuck with getting the barbri ipods here and study on my own, or move to near by state where I could attend barbri lectures. Is there anyone who used the barbri ipod studied on his or her own? how was it? Was it painful as I think it will be? Does the package include a schedule on what you need to study per day? i.e., is there some mechanism or schedule for you to be on task?Also I was thinking since my law school has its own state barbri lecture during the summer, do you think I should attend the lecture for MBE portion (MBE portion is the same across the states?) and study for NY section on my own? I really don't want to move because of absence of NY barbri class, but if this self-study is not a good idea, it seems I may have to move.
