Finals period doesn't even end for me until tomorrow so I won't be opening my books for another week. They are out of the box though!

Hey guys, I live in Brooklyn but hate the idea of taking the bar at Javits Center. Does anyone know how the assignment system works? Am I going to definitely be taking the test here in the city or is there a way to weasel my way into one of the other locations?

You get an email to choose your testing site in early June- you can choose albany or buffalo or one of the other non Manhattan sites- it's usually that nyc residents get preference on Manhattan and Javits fills up quickly and out of staters have to pick between other sites but if you want to take it at a non-manhattan site that shouldn't be an issue.

Also Javits isn't an option this summer - it's a choice between Armory Track or Pier 94 for NYC people.

I was thinking about it, but I'm going to see how I do with Themis's MBE prep first.

I have Adaptibar (as my usual go-to study tool), then I borrowed an emanuel strategies book on the recommendation from CNK!

Hi. Does anyone have a recommendation on what to select between pier 94 and armory track? Which is more conducive to test-taking?
