Barbi Diagnostics/Amp Tools or Flashcards

Postby Joeshan520 » Thu May 25, 2017 12:40 pm

Hello,

I was curious if anyone opted out of the intermittent Barbri diagnostic/Amp Tools during the course in favor of learning the black letter rules (in my case by the Critical Pass Flashcards) and doing practice problems. I know it's a matter of personal preference, but I ask because I know those Barbri tools largely determine what kind of practice problems you receive DURING the course.

Thanks in advance!

Personally did not do AMP at all. Realized that I could "guess" the correct answers simply by recognizing the shape of the text without actually digesting what I was supposed to learn/know.

Bump, interesting. Did you use flashcards (critical pass by chance)?

I bought CP flash cards but ended up reselling them. It was easier for me to study by doing a ton of practice questions and speaking out loud why an answer wad correct or incorrect. Like you mentioned, everybody's different, and I found that just memorizing and being able to recite them verbatim wasnt as helpful in studying as applying them.
