These little primers were perfect for understanding some concepts that seemed hard but are actually pretty simple. Thanks, dude.


+1

I think this thread saved me from disaster, at least on secured transactions

This has been an absolute god-send, thank you.

Could someone verify whether the wills essay re: intestacy issues is applicable for UBE states for specific $$/dollar amounts that a surviving spouse would take? I think for a UBE state, we'd just approach it with those amounts for SS and, for any other issue/heirs, discuss all three per stirpes, per capita with representation, per capita at each generation (unless directed otherwise). Not sure though.

Making them was really what solidified the memorization for me. I encourage anyone who doesn't get this stuff to just write their own swear-word-laden prose outline.

Using this now to study for the 2017 Florida bar exam! This was so helpful to dumb things down. Only wish you could have done this for every subject!! Thanks so much. :D

I'm not sure if people are still/ever used these, but some things seem off. For example, in the post on secured transactions, the original poster wrote that PMSIs perfect automatically. Isn't that only true for consumer goods? Not sure if there are errors or caveats elsewhere as well...

Don't worry guys. You won't lose an essay score point by getting something small like that wrong. I know in your position it's hard to believe, but the essays are not graded on content almost at all. Three of my six essays on the real thing were horribly off, but I still passed by a large margin. You need structure, the basic isues identified, and polish.

You're at the point in bar studying where you spend an hour double checking notes after getting a single multiple choice question wrong. I once called my dad, a lawyer, at night a week before game day to ask him what his state rule on felony murder merger doctrine was, because I feared my notes from my testing company were wrong about it after two MBE questions gave conflicting answers.

Yep, some of my stuff is almost certainly wrong. It's cool you're able to double check it. But if you're at that level, content is not your problem - confidence and time management could be though. Need to focus on relaxing and not burning out.

Damn. I wish I saw this last night. Would have saved me from some desperately wrong essay answers today. Eh well. At least this made me laugh, you're a god among men.
