I've been doing small sets of problems and then going back through them and writing down the rule/exception/nitpicky bullshit relevant detail for every one, whether I got it right or wrong, and making sure I understand why I was right/wrong. Last night I decided to try reviewing the LeanSheet for each subject immediately before doing a small of Emanuel questions and was super excited to 90% in ConLaw! Followed by 20% in Contracts. Averaged out to my usual 60% in all categories. (I only get about 5% worse on Barbri questions most of the time.)
I can't seem to get consistently over the 60% hump. What should I try?
Two possible approaches:
1) just keep drilling the MBE stuff because there are a lot of little tricks within each area of each topic and you don't fall for the trick after you've seen it once or twice. That should get you some more points...
2) alternatively, you could start focusing on essay stuff. Your MBE score looks medianish, which is well above passing for the bar. The effort required to move your MBE from median to 60th or 70th percentile might be more than the effort to move your essays from sub median to median or whatever.
