I studied, but not enough.
Quote from: London Bound, J.D. on May 13, 2008, 06:04:53 AMI studied, but not enough. Can you expand on what "enough" was for you? If you had an opportunity to go back and do it "right" the first time, how would you have changed your strategy? I am not at all effective if I stress myself to the point that you did during your second time, so I'm trying to figure out how I can avoid that (i.e. would buckling down starting next week help relieve some later pressure?). I appreciate any specifics you are willing to share.
When all is said and done, you need to find what works for you. Some general suggestions I have include figure out what are your weak points. Make sure you start on those early, so that you have the most time. If you're working on MBE questions, keep alternating subjects so you keep hitting different rules throughout. Along with keeping up with essay subjects from lectures, don't forget to do some review problems on occasion. Oh, and ignore predictions about what subjects are going to be tested. At the very least, don't let someone's predictions give you the feeling that you can ignore certain subjects. (Although I will say if you're taking CA bar, make sure you've got CA PR vs. Model Code down.)
