I'm kicking my azz trying to learn all this stuff.
Any study strategies?
I've found that the Barbri course is unmanageable... there is just too much stuff to complete at the times they want
I'm currently studying for the bar, and this is my impression:
The barbri course is quite manageable if you just completely ignore the "paced program" study schedule they have set up, go to class when it's scheduled, and study at your own pace in those areas that you feel need more work. Do a few MBE problems here and there, read some of the essay topics, etc, but don't kill yourself. Start ramping up after 4th of July, and once the class is over, spend 4-6 hours a day doing prep. Remember, the goal isn't to get the "A", it's simply to pass....I think that's the hardest part about which to convince yourself. Get a baseline competence in each area, and you should be fine.
