study notes in personal belongings room?

Postby seasidemama » Mon Jul 25, 2016 4:34 pm

can we leave study notes in the personal belongings room in the laptop bag and access during lunch? planning on reading on commute in the morning to test location - do I throw these away before entering or can I leave them in the belongings room?

thanks

This is a terrible idea. You're much more likely to burn yourself out or miss forest for the trees if you cram at the last second. Even right now, you're more or less as prepared as you're going to get. Go watch a movie, go for a walk, get to bed early.

Don't study during lunch. You won't learn anything during that time. You just need to take a break after answering questions for 3 hours.

spoken like people that adequately prepare instead of procrastinate and cram

BUT, the 2nd half of tomorrow is just MPT right? Nothing to study there. I'll definitely review my notes during lunch for the things I miss a lot of or anything I didn't know in the first half

It's not about learning new material, it's about getting a refresher

Yes. I would look over the PT materials I had over lunch on the first and third day.

And when some bright spot pulled the fire alarm in Ontario in the morning, I saw scads of people running for the notes in their bookbags. :)

Even the most prepared of people want a little extra look....and if you have lean sheets I don't think its the worst idea in the world to look at them before the exam.

I think MPT is in the morning/ MEE is afternoon

MEE is definitely in the morning in my UBE state

Oh, I'm sorry, in California, the essays are in the morning and the PT's are in the afternoon on the first and third days.

I'm so glad I never have to take a bar exam again.

I brought attack outlines and mnemomics with me and reviewed them between MBE sessions. Inevitably, you will forget something during the first session that you'll want to look over again. That's what the notes are for. You want something that you can read in five minutes. Two pages max.

With that being said, I took the UBE last July. I still have nightmares. You will too.
