If it's a morning exam, don't try to learn anything that morning. I had a routine where I was home by 6 or 7pm at the latest the night before the exam, watched some tv and fell asleep by 11pm or so.


Hm, well I guess you would have to make a judgment weighing the value of taking a day off vs. doing one more practice test, or whatever it is that you would be doing on that day (perhaps preparing for another exam?) I would only be inclined to take a day off (or half day or whatever) if it represented a net gain, not for luxury's sake.

It depends on your personality. I don't really get stressed about things, so I didn't need to de-stress the day before an exam. Plus I always get enough sleep during exam time (8-9 hours). For me, I liked to put in 8-10 hour days so the material was fresh in my mind. Since I kept a steady pace and didn't burn myself out, I never needed breaks.

I don't know about other posters, but for me each class requires a slightly different way of thinking. Getting myself into this mode of reasoning required that I be reviewing it the day before the exam. I wanted to go into the exam with nothing on my mind but the material, so for me reviewing the day before was key.

For several exams I was so focused on the exam and in tune with that style of reasoning that I ended up having dreams about the subject matter and working through hypo's in my dreams.....I know scary stuff.

Does anyone have experience with the Friedmans Practice series? They're supposed to be a essays and exams with the A+ answer provided by the professor giving the exam. Seems like they would be useful come exam time. You can check out two chapters for free with this link --LinkRemoved-- . But as an 0L I have no idea whether they are good or really what I'm supposed to be looking for in the answers.

Has Boalt password-protected all of its practice exams? I really hope not--they were an invaluable resource last semester.

They just changed the site a bit, I don't remember exactly where they are located, but they are still on their site somewhere.

Can anyone direct me? The only link I can find is "Exams" under "Resources for Students," and it requires a password.

Also, for a few of the T14s, you can get your professors' old exams off the library website...fyi.

I know it was briefly mentioned before but I was wondering if people could post links or info on Multiple Choice testing resources. I have the E&E books, other supplements, and my school has an exam bank of past hypo's but all these resources usually have very few, if any, Final Exam-level quality multiple choice questions, and at least at my school it makes up 1/3 of your grade on the test.

For CivPro, the Glannon Guide has lots of multiple choice questions and is an excellent resource. There's also a Glannon Guide or Crim Law, but by a different author and the questions are not as good. I flipped through a torts supp quick that also had MC questions that were pretty good, I'll try and remember the name.

Communicate now with those who not only know what a legal education is, but can offer you worthy advice and commentary as you complete the three most educational, yet challenging years of your law related post graduate life.

For those of us studying for midterms and I suppose gunning for finals, should we maybe start a new list of which school still make their exams available online? A lot of the links in that first post no longer work and/or have become password protected.
