Indiana Bar Prep - Behind Schedule

Postby hauki90 » Thu Jun 16, 2016 1:51 am

Hey guys,

I am taking the Indiana Bar in July and for those that have taken it in the past how feasible is it to prep for it within the next 5 weeks? I am taking Barbri but haven't taken it too seriously until the past week or so. Also, I have focused mainly on the MBE topics and haven't given much attention to the state topics for the MEE as they are only worth 30% and the MBE is 50% and the MPT 20%.

At this point I feel overwhelmed with the amount of information. Any tips or advice for passing the Indiana Bar would be greatly appreciated thanks!

I'm in about the same place as you. We're not really that begind though, I'm just plowing through barbri doing 1.5 to 2 days worth of material per day. Should be totally caught up by the time July rolls around

Yea I am doing Barbri but don't know how useful the lectures and exercises have been. I can't seem to retain the information and already feel like I'm so far behind.

Should I just devote most of my time to doing practice MBE questions?

If you do not find them helpful do not do it. I would do MBE questions and then still do the videos on Essay writing and the MEE topics you did not take a class in.

I would also work on timing. 17 questions every 30 minutes is key.

Yea I think I've abandoned following the % at the top of the page, it's not worth my time neither are the AMP exercises which see if you can fill in a sentence.
