Format: Paperback
I am a bar exam preparation teaching assistant at a law school. I passed the bar with plenty of room to spare on my first attempt, but teaching others to do the same has strained my abilities. I found this book in the law library, and it gives great advice.

People think of the bar exam as a test of memorization. But this is only part of it. The examiners want to test the examinees ability to reason just as much as their knowledge. This book has a lot of great content to help them improve their test taking and reasoning skills. When paired with a good commercial study course and a strong home study plan, a book such as this one can ensure that the student passes on the first attempt.

This book also offers good guidance for those who fail a bar exam. The best of the advice given includes seeking therapeutic help in overcoming the psychological obstacles that failing the exam creates.

Did I actually buy this book? Jesus. Never read it. I think my "Bar Skills" class in law school made me buy it. I never opened it and am better off for it. If anyone tries to tell you specifically how to prepare for the Bar, they're full of it. Everyone is different. Work hard, dedicate yourself to it, it will suck, but it will be worth it. Find some way to keep yourself level and sane but there is no specific formula. Crap like this will just make you paranoid that you're not doing enough. Like Pauly D from the Jersey Shore said, "You do you." By the way, I passed the first time around, by a long shot, because I trusted myself and my work ethic. I practiced all the time. I also spent a lot of the time in the sauna decompressing. That was my formula. Don't do that unless it works for you. There, a more worthwhile piece than this book likely is.

I bought this book as required reading for a class. IT was EXPENSIVE. And frankly a waste for me. If you really want help passing the bar focus, focus, focus. Just accept the fact if you want to pass the bar exam (this is my second)that you will need to spend a LOT of time studying, memorizing writing and doing MBE's. And I don't mean to just push yourself to your limit. I mean you push your self BEYOND YOUR current limit of S-T-u-d-y-i-n-g; not drinking. Get on eor two peeps that are committed like you SHOULD be and review together. And study A LOT more than you did in law school. If you want a good book buy 'Strategies & Tactics for the MBE' (Multistate Bar Exam) (Paperback) by Emmanuel instead. Start it 2 weeks before your bar prep class and study every. single. page. Oh yeah, get lots of sleep the month before the exam b/c you'll be getting less sleep the closer you get to D-day. But get 7 hours every chance you get.

It is a good book for the exam approach in general (I read it last week), but there is nothing new or useful to me.
It might be better for first or second time examinees. My next attempt is 2.12.

Unless you have a real tough time working through tasks - which you shouldn't if you are thinking about taking the bar - the book is pretty weak. There are a number of other resources out there that are more useful and at a better price point. Not a complete waste, but it provides very general and somewhat "New Age" advice on prep.
