Don't make noise in the house while he is studying.

Caffeine after 3-4 PM is counterproductive because it interferes with restful sleep.

Reassure him that his 10 hours of study per day are likely sufficient.

Don't hold him to any sort of plans, at all. In fact, don't ask him to do anything at all. His only focus is the bar exam.

Don't let him forget to take time on Saturday and Sunday to do something enjoyable (even though his mind will probably mostly remain on the material) - but if he feels the need to grind it out, don't argue.

Cook for him/bring home good food.

Do all of his laundry and cleaning.

Don't have any issues or crises in your life.

Last but not least, always stay positive. Don't ever let him panic.

another thing to consider: the february bar exam is a lonely one to take. its full of either part timers or repeaters. as your husband is likely a part timer (graduating in dec), he will be studying on his own or, if lucky, only a small amount of classmates taking it at the same time as him. its likely then that the man will get lonely throughout the day from thinking and talking to himself about bar junk all day. so, be sure to just engage him in casual conversation at dinner or something: he'll appreciate live human contact.

also, +1 on the blowjobs suggestion.
