Taking The Bar?

It's that time again; the time when all the recent law school grads start on the two month path toward the bar exam. The trek involves 3-4 hours a day bar review courses and supplemental studying. But you know what? It's much, much better than actually working full-time. But that's a subject for another time.

I recommend reading LWY's post on the topic. For the most part, I agree with his thoughts. There's no reason to go crazy in May. In fact there's no reason to go crazy in June. I don't think everyone needs to follow the paced program, but if you want to do so, knock yourself out. What's important is to realize that you have no chance of remembering anything you learned in May by the time Contracts or Property rolls around. It's just too much material right now. You'll learn everything in July, when you read the outlines over and over again.

So take it easy for the first month of so. By the time you take the simulated MBE, you'll probably know half of what you'll need to know for the bar. And the reality is, you'll spend the next month studying the material and doing all the PMBR and Barbri questions anyway, and that's when the real studying starts.
