I've done everything in the assignments related to the essays (reviewed lecture handout / CMR when assigned, "wrote" practice essays when assigned) and it's still VERY easy for me to be completely blindsided by an essay.
I just don't see how it's possible to pass if you don't go way above what they're assigning. My plan now is to read through most of the other unassigned essays in the book to make sure I have a good idea of what's likely to be tested.
For those of you doing Barbri, do you really think sticking to their plan alone will be enough for the Texas essays?
FYI, from here on out (starting tomorrow on my PSP), the days include stuff like "TXT: Outline and Self-Grade Additional Real Property Essays." The time allotted for each of these is 1.5 hours, which is twice what they allot for the regular essays.
But yeah, I'll also be reading through additional essays, thinking of the issues for 5 minutes, then going to the answers.
