I read over my notes once and took the contracts set, and couldn't remember shit, it was basically a waste of a question set for me. But I've taken so many con law/1A/civil liberties type classes that i've already got that all committed to memory. You'll pick it up once you really memorize the material cold
I had the same situation with Criminal Law. I got 6/18 on the first MBE quiz they directed me to because I couldn't remember anything about specific elements to crimes (all the questions I got right were from Crim Pro which is easy breezy). I took a day off, spent the next day committing most of the crimes to memory, and then bested the target goal for the next two quizzes (another 18 and a 36 question set).
So, like, at least memorize some of the material before diving in head first. Getting the vast majority of questions wrong because I didn't know the basics didn't help me at all; the "learning by doing (wrong)" method works when you have a usable, if imperfect, grasp of the material.
