It was the first day of his three-day brush-up before the actual exam. Today was the simulated MBE - 100 questions in the morning and 100 questions in the afternoon. I was unsure of how much I would get out of this because I do pretty well on the MBE part of the bar exam, but I've only done a couple hundred practice questions since last February so I figured I needed to see where I stood.
As it turns out, I'm not doing too bad. I got 150 of the 200 correct, and I only saw about 20 questions that were familiar. The next two days are lectures and review of the questions. This is going to be interesting because I know there's a bunch of MBE trivia that I forgot over the last 5 months.
These last couple of weeks before the exam are going to be crammed with essay writing, issue spotting, rule memorization, PT writing/review, and a fair amount of MBE practice. I know what you're thinking, that the time for all the intensive work has passed, but what works for most normal people doesn't work for me. Or, at least, it hasn't in the past. What's the definition of insanity again ...?
On the positive side, I think I've figured out what's wrong with my writing. But I won't talk too much about that until November when I find out whether I actually did figure it out, or whether I just found another color of lipstick to stick on this decrepit old pig.
So, there ya' go.
Back at it, I am now.
