I don't use my computer at all in class anyway; I find it distracting. It's just that class though, some others allow hard drive access for the exam, some are closed book. It's just a professor's policy so I'm not sure how that's despicable??

LRW delivered this week.

We also got our research exam grades back today, which was pretty interesting.


Torts closed book exam here. Literally have no idea how I'm going to remember everything flying at me. Looked at a past exam, sat there, and was like "Well, I hope this is like the SAT apparently was cause I need 600 points for just signing my name." Then I remembered it's all anonymously graded, so I lost all hope of getting any number of points at all.

I feel that. I'm not worried about intentional torts, but it's going to be pretty shitty making sure all the neg doctrines and how they work together get memorized.


It's alright man. Just keep telling myself it's a couple more weeks, even less for you though, right?

basically 2 weeks of class left before we go into reading days. I'm borderline panicking, but that's probably normal? Outlining has been going okay, but most of the crim outlines that I got from 2L/3L folks are 100+ pages and it's pretty intimidating, considering that I haven't started yet.

not for me anyways. a lot of people in my class are making flash cards, which isn't an altogether bad idea. my torts exam is going to have a MC section comprised of questions from old bar exams. guess it'll be good training for the real thing? :|
at least a closed book exam will mean more separation in the curve?

Here are three: 4, 15, 17
http://www.ncbex.org/pdfviewer/?file=ht ... ument%2F17

You can find more (fake or old) in bar prep materials or you can buy them from NCBEX.org, but they're not cheap and you'll only get 27 torts questions for every 200-question test.

Thanks! I think one of the Barbri or Kaplan books I picked up at the beginning of 1L had some MC sample questions too, but more is def better. My crim law exam also has MC questions, so bonus! :mrgreen:

On the subject of torts MC, I find the Glannon Guide to be incredibly helpful

RE: open hard drive exams...

Does this mean you can just copy/paste from your outline onto the exam?

I think this is one of the reason profs don't want people to have open hard drive exams - to preclude cutting/pasting stuff from the outline, and also to preclude control-F-ing your way through an exam.

Well, if they wanted you to practice real world skills they wouldn't give you three hours to ID all the possible claims in a fact pattern on your own, either.
