Don’t you know that I’m very tired of saying that?
But I got some good advice yesterday that I believe is going to make this third time the charm.
Allow me to explain. My school used past bar exam essay questions for our final exams. While this was a good way to expose us to the material and format of the exam, it also ingrained one very bad habit. The bad habit was that we were learning to write answers to bar exam questions in law school style. The unfortunate result in my case is two failed attempts at writing bar exam style answers to bar exam questions.
I learned yesterday, in a very specific way, what I was doing wrong and how to change it.
Besides improving what I put on the paper, it should allow me to spend more time on my analysis and less time on the non-points-earning part of my answer.
Now all I have to do is develop a better plan for the PTs.
One thing at a time though, one thing at a time.
