Wow, United... way to try to minimize your treatment of Mr. Dao. Although possibly unstable.. Nevertheless not protocol.

Great job!! What did you use to be so successful?


I used Themis in conjunction with Critical Pass flash cards. The last two weeks of study I barely touched Themis and focused on the flash cards. I typically studied for 4-6 hours per day for 6 days a week. Two weeks before the exam I upped that to 7 days a week. I answered and reviewed close to 2300 multiple choice questions. I can't say enough about the flash cards, they helped my understanding of the MBE topics immensely.

My first simulated exam I scored a 105/200 the second simulated portion i scored 52/100. I was usually hitting around 55-60 % on my MC practice sets. Near the end of the program I was getting closer to 70-75 % on MC sets and the last week I had an unexplained drop in scores down to 50%. I was really nervous about the exam because it seemed like I was regressing leading up to the exam. After taking the MBE I was confident I had failed (marshalling wtf?!?). I thought so many questions boiled down to the difference between putting your feet in your shoes and putting your shoes on your feet, if that makes any sense.

Airfair is pretty cheap these days. They often have 400 to 500 round trip deals to Euro or Asia. Go to slickdeal, and sign up airfair notification, you will get the cheap fair notification. The dates are usually restricted, buy hey I am a jobless law school graduate, I can take off pretty much anytime I want lol.

Yep, a decent hotel is easily 200 plus a night. Did you find a cheap testing site? Usually the rural testing sites have cheap hotels.

Yes a motel a couple of miles outside Albany as all hotels in the centre were fully booked when I looked.

I did rent a car to drive upstate from JFK, which proved to be really handy for the exam too.

It looks like Idaho is on par with previous Feb results. All the other UBE states are significantly lower than previous Feb administrations.
