I also feel like i got lucky on a lot of the questions though. I definitely had not been performing anywhere near getting 75% right on the MBE MPQ's or whatever they are called. Maybe its just becoming familiar with the particularities of BARBRI's tricky questions.
If you could explain your strategy, that would be great. Need to pick up about 15 raw points to better position myself on the MBE.
Hey, sure. I can't promise that it will be anything groundbreaking, but here goes. I averaged anywhere from 60-90% on subjects for the MPQs, most of the averages around 65% correct, so between taking those and the sim. mbe i picked up some points.
First, i watched most of the lectures at 1.25x or 1.5x speed, depending on professor, Paula got 1.75 sometimes due to her annoying me so much hah. Absolutely wasting your time if youre not at least doing 1.25. Did all the questions assigned, and made sure to do all of the homework assigned as well. I half-assed a lot of the homework assignments, i dont know whether those actually help or not, but i probably remembered a few things from them. I think where I probably differ from others doing review now is that aside from reviewing my lecture notes, i have also highlighted and re-read through the CMR mini review book (not the giant one) several times for each subject (If you arent aware, just the lectures will NOT prepare you for the MBE questions like many of the professors say. Especially the MPQ questions from BARBRI, which test the most minute parts of the law) Maybe not several for each, but definitely several times and highlighted carefully on my worse sections: property, torts, etc... I also took most of these classes in law school and did well im not sure exactly how much that helps either. I have also gone back through at least one MPQ question set for each subject and took those again while watching tv, i think seeing those again helps. I recommend question set #2, since it was the hardest. Learning how to separate the vague answers that are right from the answer that the test writer wants you to pick is kind of a science, and thats probably where i picked up all my points.
I hope this helps some of you. If i think of anything else i've been doing, will edit the post. Overall, I would guess i have done 6-8 hours per day from Day 1, being very generous with that number. Also recommend working out or doing something to keep sane throughout the day.
