You might feel a little uncomfortable because the commercial bar prep lectures are over and although you have a study schedule, you are not sure about following it exactly as given. This is a good thing because it means you have a sense of what you need to do to prepare. It means you don’t need to rely on commercial bar prep for every little detail. Use the commercial bar prep schedule as a base and adapt to what works best for you based on your strengths and weaknesses. For example, if you scored above average on the practice MBE, you probably don’t have to spend as much time on MBE prep. In general, I recommend covering 2-4 two subjects a day and for each subject:
- Review notes;
- How you review is up to you. There is no one right way to do it.
- Work through practice essays and MBEs.
- in time, NO notes;
- Review your responses, modify as needed.
- Compare essay responses to released responses and reconcile difference, figure out why you missed an MBE question.
Whether you study 2, 3, or 4 subjects a day is up to you. How much time to spend per subject and per component depends on your comfort-level and how you like to learn.
Keep studying and practicing and working your plan. While you should take note of your failures, you should also recognize your successes. This is what helps you stay in control and move forward.
