“BAR exam 101: Study Tips”

Have you passed the bar exam, yet?

It’s the question that’s sure to be the bane of your existence until you pass the exam, land a job and word spreads far and wide that you’re living the dream as a gainfully employed lawyer.

Everyone you meet—old friends, former law school classmates, your parents’ friends and even people you went to high school with—is going to ask you. And you’re going to get real tired real fast of providing the same old answer: Not yet.

So whether you’re planning to take the exam for the first, second or third time, it’s time to get serious about your studying. Here’s how:

Prepare like your life depends on it.

In a sense, your life does depend on your ability to pass the bar exam—at least the quality of your life. You’ve invested a lot of time and possibly money in earning your J.D., and you did this because the return on your investment was that you’d someday be a lawyer, get paid a respectable wage, pay off your student loans and live the good life.

Hire a tutor.

So you’ve already taken a class, huh? Why in the world would you need additional third-party help with your preparation? The real question is, why in the world wouldn’t you? A law school tutor is someone who has been there, done that. He or she will be able to give you valuable insight that’s based real-world experience. And that’s the best kind of experience.

Don’t skip the practice exams.

If you’ve taken two practice exams you’ve taken them all, right? Wrong. Practice exams are extremely important. They show you what you’re doing right, what you’re doing wrong and why maybe you’re better prepared to succeed on the exam than you think.

Review, review, review.

Now, don’t get the wrong idea. Simply taking a practice exam won’t help you. You need to review them over and over again and look for patterns and trends. That will help you focus your efforts.

Live right.

It sounds cliche because it is, but if you want to do your best, you need to be healthy. So eat right and get plenty of sleep.
