It was great to know I wasn't wasting time really studying for...Family Law, knowing it wasn't going to be on the exam. The only caveat's that with a frequency chart (also on the blog), you can pretty much narrow it down to 8-10 subjects you must study for the exam. You still have to do your due diligence and at least "review" the other 5-8 subjects.
I got the One Sheets. They go over the topics that have been tested over the last decade, also by frequency (by exam), and even a note on what happens as per issue. Towards the exam, I ditch anything over 2 pages (per subject) and that's more for recall than "I have no idea what's going on". I LOVED them.

I don't work for them, nor do I receive compensation for recommending - just to put that out there
I bought the One sheets for July 2017 and then didn't retake. I was thinking about redoing my personal outlines that I've used for other bar exams. Not sure if that is a waste of time. I know that the One Sheets have wonderful information but I feel like when my brain is studying for MBE that I perfer a more elemental type of approach when reviewing an outline. The One Sheet outlines are more in paragraph format but with color coded highlights. I feel like that is more for when my mind is in essay study mode. Weird?
