Don't know if this is already general knowledge but a friend in a different state told me their barbri person told them that one half of the exam is noticeably more difficult than the other and that it seems like they alternate by seating arrangement who gets which half each half of the day...all this to say, if you start feeling like your morning half is really difficult, don't freak out too much. Good luck! So close to done :D

100 down. Hopefully the hard half because that was barbri-level specificity for most questions. Also, was it just me or were there no "if" answers?

A lot of stressed people who didn't finish around me.

Yup, no "if" answers and omg so many right answers! 80% of the questions were a close call. Very specific. Noticed I had many same letters in a row.

Definitely. A lot felt like they were asking which is more correct.

so, dunno if others experienced this, but if an answer jumped at me and then I read that as a choice, I would start to doubt myself if I was being too obvious and missing some fine exception :(

Yeah I did the same thing. I was afraid to pick the basic rule statement because I assumed there would be a small exception that applied.

It's kind of nice to hear that you guys are feeling the same way as me.

Also I had sooo many of the same answer in a row. Very unnerving.

Yup I looked at my scantron and saw a lot of repeats and a pattern repeating 3 times in a row. I looked over my answers and figured they're probably not all right but I chose the best option in my mind. I wasn't going to change my answers based on that.

Did a rough calculation, if I got every single 50/50 wrong, I probably came in around 70/100 for the first half. 100 more to go!

Wow. You're a lot more confident than I am. There were very few that I was 100% sure of.

Maybe I got the easier half and the afternoon half will be miserable. Haha. Or I can just be over confident and missed lots of stuff.

I don't think the alternate halves among different people.

Pretty sure some people get the easy half in the morning, some in the afternoon.

That was def tougher than I thought, especially civpro for me. I initially started marking ones I was unsure of, but I stopped doing it once I realized it was like half the questions lol

Really hope that "if you get the hard half in the morning the second half will be easier" thing is true.

Felt very shitty about that. But, on the bright side I guess, that's how I felt about every practice test I took. ...

Really hoping the PM is better.
