Can I use JD Advising MBE One-Sheets as a Substitute for Outlines?

MBE one-sheets, bar exam attack outlines, MBE One-sheet, multistate bar exam one sheet, jd advising one sheet, constitutional law mbeCan I use JD Advising MBE One-Sheets as a Substitute for Outlines? 

Many students who have purchased our JD Advising MBE one-sheets (Multistate Bar Exam one-sheets) have asked if they can be used as a substitute for full MBE outlines.

They should not be used as a substitute for full MBE outlines because while they are very detailed, they do not contain examples of the law or show how the law works.

We recommend you use them as a study tool, a way to actively review the law and quiz yourself, a convenient guide to carry around, and a fantastic cheat sheet of the highly tested areas of law, rather than as a substitute for full outlines. Continue reading

How to BS a Bar Exam Answer – in 10 Easy Steps

LSAT logic games, how to bs a bar exam answerHow to BS a Bar Exam Answer – in 10 Easy Steps

Are you wondering what to do if you see a bar exam question and have no idea how to answer it. Students generally take one of two approaches: Some panic and do not write anything (or barely write anything), chalk it up to a loss and pray that they can answer the remaining questions correctly. Others write beautiful answers that have virtually nothing of great substance in them.

We highly recommend that you take the latter approach. Why? Because bar exam graders are busy. If you write nothing – or close to nothing – they will happily give you a point or two (if that) and be on their way. They do not want to spend hours grading essays. They want to get back to their glass of wine or their Netflix or whatever. So if you write very little you are making it very easy for them to justify a low score.

On the contrary, if you write a lot, you may just convince them to give you a few extra points that you (probably) don’t deserve. We have  read thousands upon thousands of bar exam essays and we have seen students get average scoring essays even though they truly have no idea what they are talking about! Every point counts on the bar exam. Learning how to BS a bar exam answer can make the difference between passing and failing. Not to mention it will help you feel more confident walking into the bar exam. So with that….

Here are our 10 best tips to BS a bar exam answer if you truly do not know what to say. Continue reading
