1) Do you guys watch the MBE workshop videos? The first 2 I watched (evidence, torts) seemed to just say exactly what was in the answers in the book.
2) Does anyone else find it annoying for the black letter law assessments and AMP that we don't find out if we're wrong or get the correct answer immediately after each question? Seems bad for studying -- if we're wrong wouldn't they immediately want to correct it instead of having us re-misapply the law over and over again?
I know Themis has an option where you can either go straight through and get the correct answers at the end (test mode) or get the answers immediately after each question (study mode). Not sure why Barbri doesn't have this feature, programming it would be super simple.
I stopped watching the MBE workshop videos because of the reason you said. But they seem to give strategy tips unique for each module during those lectures so I don't know if it'll be worth doing it as a review?
Definitely agree with the AMP stuff.
Anyone else really struggle with the Crim MPQ assigned today? I had done pretty well in the previous one then my scores dropped drastically with this set
Yes! Glad to know I'm not only one. I had done really well on all the prior sets and bombed this one. Was a lot of questions on nuanced exceptions in crim law with barely any procedure Qs. I'm just going to chalk it up to being an abnormally difficult one.
Not a fan of the MBE workshop videos either. The whole 5 minute lead in of "Sure, XXX subject may not be the most exciting topic in the world, but I'm confident with the right preparation . . ." drives me crazy. They could all be cut down to 15-20 minutes in my opinion. Thankfully I only have one left, and I'll probably just watch at 2x while folding laundry or something. Wish I had wised up to their uselessness earlier.
I don't mind the AMP waiting until the end to tell you your score. I like to get into the swing if answering questions and not get bogged down with the nuances as I go. I also take notes on the questions I got wrong, so that may be why immediate feedback is extra distracting to me.
and re: crim: I was pretty disheartened as well, but then I saw we were only aiming for 9/18 on that set!
