Getting started, I am. I'm using a book now that I bought back in the Spring for the July exam. It should be useful because I used it only rarely at the time, seeing as I had both the PMBR and BarBri books from which to study. It contains not only a boatload of questions, but a pretty good PMBR-like breakdown on the diabolical psychology of MBE construction. It's Strategies and Tactics for the MBE by Walton and Emanuel. I'm not very far into it yet but I'll try to post a review before too long. Make sure to ask me if I forget, eh?
Zeb made a comment in, uh, the comments, about a list he had compiled of resources that we all talk about when we ask each other for advice. I put the link to the list in my Blogroll along with a link to his blog, but you can also get to the list here. It seems to cover the main resources. I'm sure he'll not appreciate me asking you to send him recommendations if you know of one that he hasn't listed. So I'm not asking you to do that. Okay? Get it? I'm not asking you to send him ideas for his list. But, of course, if you want to go ahead and send them on your own, he can't blame me for all of the extra work! (;-)> Hey, might as well make it complete, eh? Make sure to thank him as you drop them off on his doorstep. Perhaps some homemade brownies would help?
Speaking of food, it looks like many people have chosen Thanksgiving as the stepping off point on their journey to the Feb exam. You can count me among that group. I know what you're thinking. You're remembering the posts where I wrote that I would start studying again after Labor Day. Well... it turns out that my tenuous hold on the hope that my essay scores would be high enough to bolster my lagging PT scores was weakened even more by the thought of studying again so soon. So, in the interest of sustaining the self delusional happiness for as long as I possibly could, I decided not to study again until after the results were released.
It turns out that ignorance is indeed bliss. And now I sit here in knowing non-bliss. It's like when you finally decide to spring for that 60-inch HDTV. Life's great! And then, after three and a half months of movie-watching ecstasy, you find out that it's been recalled. The factory's taking it back for repair. And you won't get it back for six months!!!! Yikes! And on top of that, they tell you that you're going to have to be the one to fix it! Double-Yikes!!
So here I am. I've got the repair manual and my tools laid out on the table in front of me and I have to teach myself how to fix my 60-inch HDTV. And the worst part about the challenge is that it doesn't look like a 60-inch HDTV at all. It looks like a California Bar Exam! Triple-Yikes!!!
