I just checked my percentages and they're all in the high 60s and 70s except con law, which is like 50%.

Con Law was definitely my worst. I have 57%, but that's only because I've recently gotten better at the MBEs overall. My very first score was in the 40s, and then the three after were in the low 50s. I'm not rewatching because I think my problem was I needed to read the questions/answers more carefully. Reading the big outline would also be useful because a lot of the questions I've gotten wrong were not discussed in the lecture, handout, or final outline.
my con law professor was a complete joke in law school, so i didn't learn anything. I figured it'd be easier to learn from scratch but I was wrong. I need to teach myself somehow because the lectures didn't work for me. Maybe I'll give the big outline a shot. I never read those.
When you look at the breakdown, is there a specific area that you're having trouble with? I remember I was initially having a LOT of trouble with Aliens and First Amendment rights issues, so when I did review, I focused on those issues a little bit more. That helped me get a bit better.
