Five Study Tips For The California Performance Test

Below we provide our top five study tips for the California Performance Test. Students often tend to wait too long to begin practicing performance tests. Because the California Performance Test is valued the same as two California essays a strong performance test score can provide a buffer for you if you struggle with a California essay (and students often report encountering at least one essay that tests issues they didn’t expect!).  In fact, the performance test accounts for 20% of your written score.

MBE Time Management: Develop an MBE Scantron Strategy

mbe time management, mbe scantron strategy, mbe skip questions, IRAC on the Bar ExamMBE Time Management: Develop an MBE Scantron Strategy

MBE time management is a struggle for many students. It is important to manage your time on the MBE for two reasons:

  • First, you want to make sure you answer each question on the MBE. (You are not penalized for incorrect answers!) Thus, every bubble should be filled in.
  • Second, you want to make sure you are able to answer the questions you are most likely to get right. This means that you do not want to just randomly fill in the last ten bubbles on your scantron sheet. If you have to “randomly fill in” a bubble on your scantron sheet, it is better if you probably wouldn’t have known the answer to that question anyway. In other words, you want to be strategic about which questions you guess on.

We have some great strategies on MBE timing tips here. In this post, we simply focus on developing MBE time management using an MBE scantron strategy.  Continue reading MBE Time Management: Develop an MBE Scantron Strategy
