No, because all y'all keep ignoring me and signing up for BarBRI/Kaplan/Themis and giving in to the test-prep industrial complex. That anxiety is your own doing.

I was at a firm event the other day and a partner told me he didn't study for 2/3 bar exams he took and was tipsy for the beginning of the other one. Passed all three. Good school + any effort + an exam for minimum competency = not as bad as people make it out to be.

Yeah I just recently purchased that book so I hope I can read it and learn something. It is my first final that is happening in about two weeks. Fuck realizing it is in two weeks just made me almost barf. I am fucked. Any particular advice for a closed book exam study prep?

Outline. Then re-write/condense your outline. Do this over and over again until the material is memorized.

Also, closed book Con Law sounds awful. At least everyone else is in the same boat: USS Totally Fucked.


I'm all aboard. Closed book here.

If I haven't taken very detailed notes and have never made my own outline would you still suggest this method? Or should I just try to read Chem and study off of the two outlines I have from a bank?

Tension among the section, not nearly as much time to study between each final as last semester, but at least feeling good in the sense that most everyone else has been burnt out since the beginning of March.
