Still haven't done the practice essay exam though (and don't know that I will). I feel like my time at this point might be better spent learning rules and doing some practice questions here and there than burning myself out on a simulated test, potentially getting discouraged, and losing all willpower to continue doing anything else that day.
Anyone else feeling the same way?
I barely did any studying this weekend, and I'm just starting to study now. I'm just over it and want to get this ridiculous thing over with. While I totally understand you don't want to burn yourself out we're still 8 days away from the exam, and I really found the simulated essay exam to be helpful in that it sort of prepares you to be ready for anything. The actual exam isn't going to tell you what the essays are on before you read the prompt so it can be somewhat of a shock at first since you're not really sure what subject you're in until you get to the call of the question or even after you read the fact pattern. Even if you don't take the whole simulated in a day I do recommend doing it.
Yeah I'm still debating it. I've never been a practice exam person. I don't think I did a single one in law school and it worked out just fine for me, so I'm kind of torn between the seemingly contradictory "don't reinvent the wheel" vs. "do a million practice essays" advice Themis is giving us.
