True. The warranties tend to occur when a bunch of banks look at/transfer the check. I think I'm just combining shit that really doesn't get combined IRL.
I probably have no basis for this opinion, but since you're also in a UBE jurisdiction (I think?), I would say if you can reason your way through the model answer for the last graded essay, the commercial paper one, that's probably about as bad as you're going to see.
And take solace that it's a pretty universally weak topic. I know it's not curved, but you're probably not in a worse position than anyone else. So if you can get some rules of law down, like 'is this a negotiable instrument, was there a negotiation, is this person an HDC, can the maker/drawer assert real or personal defenses', then you're doing pretty well. Also, it's 1/18th of your total score. Less than 1/18. 1/3 (approx.) of your total exam score is MEE * 1/6 = 1/18. It's way. way. way. oversimplified (like not literally .05%), and I realize that. but at least for me it helps me stop worrying so much.
I don't say that to encourage you to blow it off. But if it helps you on test day to know that even if you meet an essay that makes you go WHAT THE FUCKING FUCK, you can still get down enough to get some points, and that's still gonna be helpful.
