EDIT: More specifically, are they redundant as compared to the essay-writing outlines that are already in the essay practice book?
The worst answer: for CA-- it depends. Some are useful and Sakai gives more info than provided on the bare bones handout. Others he just reads the handout.
Thanks for the info. How about the MBE workshops? I've missed the first few and am wondering if going through the videos is necessary, or if I should just do the problems. For some reason, I can't download/speed up the MBE workshops (unlike all the other BarBri videos).
Most of the MBE video is covered in the "answers and analysis" portion of the MBE workbook. The first few minutes (10-15?), however, gives an overview of % of types of questions within the subject that show up on the MBE and also how many questions, overall, from the subject show up on the MBE-- that could be useful for perspective.
Intermingled in the MBE videos are little strategy hints for answering certain types of questions. I think, then, it's a balancing question-- should you waste many minutes of your life to find a few golden nuggets?
