Bar exam study: Any reason to attend lectures in person?

Postby VincentChase » Sat May 19, 2012 7:10 pm

Like a lot of you, I'm getting ready to begin studying for my state bar in a week or so (formally).

Wondering if there is any reason to actually go to the Barbri lectures every day, or whether you think that watching the lectures online and studying at home is just as effective.

The answer I keep getting is that going to the classes keeps you disciplined and in a routine, but I'm pretty good at sticking to a schedule, and I'd love to save myself the drive time every day and also build a little flexibility into my daily routine.

No reason at all. I never went to one. The only discipline you need for the bar exam is the fear of embarrasment that will accompany failure. Saves the commute, time you could be using to study or relax your brain between study sessions.

:lol: It's certainly tempting; but with 2nd semester median pwnage being so imminent, I'd better refrain
