PMBR for 1L finals?

Postby Mr.Throwback » Sat Nov 02, 2013 3:24 pm

Can someone explain to me how this 32 disc set will help me study for my finals? Are these video lectures or multiple choice questions? Thank you all in advance.

I guess it won't help for essay finals. How about a 70 question Contracts MC final?

No. Why on earth do you think a national bar prep company will help you answer questions written by your professor about the material presented by that professor?

It might not be useless but it's almost certainly not a good use of your time.

Every 1L takes contracts, but that doesn't mean every 1L contracts course/professor/exam are the same. Far from it.

Well he mentions how he tailors his exams to be similar to the bar in length and question formation...

And selected the cases and the focus for your course, not whoever through together PMBR to prey on the anxiety of 1Ls.

You're not being tested on how well you know the material, you're being tested on how well you apply the material taught to you by your specific professor. Supplements can help clear up confusion or see the forest for the trees on occasion, but are not otherwise necessary or beneficial. And I'd stay miles away from crap put out by bar review companies, who aren't even competent at preparing students for the bar (they're just the only game in town).
