Ready for the bar exam? We have two bar exam quizzes that test whether your memorization is up to par! The first bar exam quiz can be found here. The second one is found below.
Our bar exam quiz is short — only 7 questions. But it tests whether or not you are ready for the bar exam — at least the memorization aspect of it. If you struggle with memorization, then you will also struggle with application (because you won’t have enough law to apply!). So this quiz tells you whether you need to work on memorization this last week before the bar exam.
Note: We have purposely chosen questions that are highly-tested on many state bar exams, including the multistate essay exam (and Uniform Bar Exam). Continue reading

My Bar Exam Flashcards Story
My Bar Exam Flashcards Story: Most everyone takes some risks in their bar prep studying; most make some misstates as well. One of the keys to creating a study strategy that works best for you, and to help minimize the negative consequences of your mistakes and risks, is to understand how you learn. One of the biggest risks that I (Laura) took while studying for the bar was to insert the creation of flashcards into my study schedule. Unfortunately I let this extra task spiral out of control. It took too much time away from other important aspects of bar preparation. My mistake was not fatal however, because I understood enough about myself and how I learn to make sure that I got enough value out of my flash card project.

The author of this post (Ashley Heidemann) received a 180 on the MBE. I studied a lot and of course did practice problems, but I found memorizing the details of the law was the biggest contributor to my overall score. After all, as anyone who has completed any multiple choice practice questions can tell you, the MBE tests the nuances and the details of the law.
