Last night, I took part in a great #bartips Twitter chat (organized by The Student Appeal) about preparing for the bar exam. There was lots of good advice handed out, but one thing in particular struck me:
Much of the advice was entirely contradictory!
What’s the Best Way to Study for the Bar Exam?
Some people insisted you should study in a quiet place with no distractions, while others swore by public coffee shops (so you’d get used to distractions and still be able to focus). Some people insisted group work was the key to passing, but others found groups to be distracting and stressful. What’s best? Flashcards, flowcharts, cramming for the MBE, taking tons of practice essays? Opinions varied.
But — you know what? Every single one of these people passed the bar!
