Postby SowhatsNU » Tue May 02, 2017 11:39 am

I know, I know, waited till the last minute, but does anyone have advice on what to read/how to cram for an evidence exam due in a week?

Thanks in advance!

Buy and read the E&E. There is a badass Evidence outline somewhere on TLS (don't recall where). I went to my evidence class once, taught it to myself in 3 days. It is very doable.

Bribe someone who has recently taken a bar exam into giving you his/her bar prep Evidence outline.

You can do it. You'll be fine.

What is the format of the exam? Essay, multiple choice, or a combo? That will impact my recommendation.

What kind of law school dean lets professors fail students? Holy shit; hope that's just a rumor.

My evidence professor did just that. Or at least, he said he did. Of course, he also gave out multiple A+s. Kind of a jerk, but I got an A soooo. Edit: I mean A+. The reason this was surprising to me is that I'm solidly average.

Hmmm, none that stand out. Maybe legal pro? Evidence was my highest grade. I studied the hell out of the Barbri MBE questions. It turns out the exam questions were pretty similar, so I did okay. Edit: This isnt as bad as it seems. My school has a tough curve. I'm solidly in the middle. And by A, I meant A+
