For instance, are you all committing to memory the medical malpractice pre-suit procedures under Florida tort law? At some point one would think the level of granular detail is not expected from the Board, right? Or are people committing to memory things like the particular restrictions on transferring condominiums interests? Are we shooting for breadth, depth, or the whole shebang?
Personally, I'm shooting for breadth on most topics since that is all that is really needed for the MC portion. But on heavily tested essay topics like contracts and torts, I am trying to (key word: trying) memorize more minute rules, such as pre-suit med mal procedures for torts. I think it's also important to know areas of the law where there are clear distinctions between the MPE rules and the FL rules, since in so many ways they are similar (meaning that they will likely want to exploit dissimilarities - just my gut feeling). Then there are some subjects, like commercial paper, for example, where I am just reviewing the CMR and my lecture notes and not doing any further studying. I think it's about prioritizing. In an ideal world, we would be going for the whole shebang. But we can only do so much and fit so much info into our brains, so I'm doing what I can to stuff as much in as possible.
