After looking at past exams all day, I have come to a conclusion: the only way I am going to pass is if I do extremely well on the MBE and the bar examiners give me enough partial credit for the garbage I write down on the essays. I know that the because VA doesn't release model answers that the answers provided by my bar review course are kind of subjective; some of them I take issue with and think my answer/analysis/approach is equally valid. However, about half of the questions I am completely whiffing.
I really thought I had UCC art. 3+4 down after spending nearly an entire day on it last week. I came across a problem today and got it completely wrong. If I get one on my bar, I may just write down the requirements of negotiable instrument, holder in due course, and shelter doctrine and then just move on.
