So, this weekend was not as productive as I had liked. I simply adjusted my study schedule a bit, so I will still be following the same "roadmap".
With that being said, I reviewed any answer I wasn't 100% about (from my first PT) and turned over the logic in my head until the solution made sense.
As far as studying, I am using:
1) A schedule provided by 7Sage as I take the online course.
2) While not taking PTs, I employ the Pomodoro Technique, as it helps me stay focused. (http://pomodorotechnique.com/). There are many Google Chrome extensions to help you implement this.
3) I am also using the "Don't Break The Chain" (http://lifehacker.com/5886128/how-seinf ... on-problem) to keep the study schedule consistent.
I found all of these recommendations in a "Doing Well In Law School" thread - I will do my best to locate it at some point.
How is everyone's prep going?
What's the pomodoro technique, in a nutshell.
25 minutes of focused work followed by 5 minute breaks. Every 4 "cycles" you get a 15 minute break.
I find this technique to really helps me focus and make the best use of my limited time. I don't find myself reading and not comprehending or going off on web-browsing tangents. Knowing I have the upcoming 5 minute break to read the interesting article I saw or grab a snack keeps me on-task.
