This is her story in her own words:
There was one month left until the Feb 2019 CA Bar Exam and I had just completed the full day mock exam for the MBE. I passed approximately 30% of the questions, in other words I failed. I was enrolled in a commercial bar prep course.
I was very sad about my performance on test day. My MBE score would be worth 50% of my overall grade and there was no way I could pass the exam without a significant improvement in my MBE performance. While I had completed at that point over 1500 practice questions and carefully reviewed each questions’ explanation, I felt stuck at a 30% passing score.
In early Feb, around midnight, wide awake and stressed out of my mind (I was convinced I would fail and had to retake in July) I decided to look online for new MBE studying tips. As scared as I was, I really wanted to pass the bar and I wasn’t afraid to deviate from the studying template I had been using thus far and for which I had invested $2000 in.
THAT’S WHEN I CAME ACROSS THE FREE ARTICLE WRITTEN BY JD ADVISING. THEY CALL IT THE “LEGAL PAD” METHOD. I EXCLUSIVELY APPLIED THIS METHOD FOR 30 DAYS LEADING UP TO THE EXAM AND STOPPED USING ALL OTHER STRATEGIES. I DID BEGIN TO SEE SLOW YET STEADY IMPROVEMENT IN MY SCORE AND ULTIMATELY PASSED THE BAR. HAD I NOT STARTED USING THIS METHOD, I WOULD BE STUCK AT A 30% MBE PASSING SCORE AND WOULD NOT HAVE PASSED THE CA BAR.
For 30 days, every morning the first thing I would do is review my legal pad notes and by the end of the month my notes had grew to almost 50 pages. I often heard for bar prep that for the few days leading up to the bar it’s best to have a condensed outline for every topic. Well, by using the legal method to improve my MBE score I also ended up having a handmade condensed review guide for all my outlines. How perfect is that?! So, for the 3 days leading up to the exam I only reviewed for the bar off my legal pad notes. One thing I want to highlight specifically from the article that I loved is that if you take notes for an area of the law you missed and then you take another practice set and get the same area of law wrong, you must write down the same info again. It works! You end up retaining the info in a more meaningful and long-term way by re-writing it.
Thank you so much JD Advising for helping me pass the Feb 2019 CA Bar!
