I think I'm going to blow through all the Contracts lectures & fill out the BarNotes as fast as possible, saving all the QBank questions until the end. Then I can catchup on the Essay Workshop + Torts. Hopefully be caught up by the weekend.
The cards seem incredibly helpful, if you're willing to take the time to use them. My problem is finding that time. I think I want to prioritize them over any of Kaplan's prep tools (One Sheets, for example, or Flex Cards). Although I've heard the Flex cards are good for state distinctions in things like Evidence...
Around midnight. I've been keeping pace with the lectures, and have condensed the bar notes (in outline form, roughly 10 pages each) for almost everything so far. If you include the checkpoint quizzes, then I've been doing an avg of 30 MBE Qs a day (weekdays). I've only outlined 2 practice essays and 1 MPT so far though. I think I need to find a way to incorporate those more throughout the week (or use the weekends to catch up). One caveat: I generally stop working after dinner. I'll wrap up review of MBE Qs, e.g., but I won't start something new. This will probably have to change as we get deeper into June/July.
Good to hear. I decided to forego one sheets entirely. I figured condensing as outlines was more useful for me. And I haven't looked at Flex cards yet either. If it's useful for distinctions, I may take a look at that in July, I guess?
A side note: I think I'm going to wait to do MBE questions on a particular subject until after ALL the videos. I've found that there's too much content overlap (a negligence issue may implicate defenses, and you may not have covered that yet, e.g.) so it makes it a bit hard. Of course, that's a good way to learn too, I suppose.... but I might just allocate that time to MBE Qs for previously covered topics instead.
