Studying for the NY Bar
« on: November 12, 2010, 06:28:22 PM »
Hi Everyone,

I need some advice on whether to take a bar prep program for the NY bar.  I just passed the FL bar and I plan to take the NY bar in Feb, but I'm not sure if I should sign up for a bar review course or study on my own.  I have the materials for the MBE and will be getting the NY study materials (including lecture notes) from a friend.  I don't know if I'm missing out on anything important by not taking a course... but bar prep tuition is just so expensive.  When I studied for the FL bar, I watched all the video lectures but found them to be a waste of time.  All I really need is the study material which I'm getting for much less money.  However, everyone I talk to says the NY bar is more difficult than the FL bar and that I should sign up for a prep course.  Any advice?
