How I got A+’s in 55% of my law school classes.  

law school classes that will prepare you for the uniform bar exam,Bar Exam Prep CompanyHow I got A+’s in 55% of my law school classes.  

An A+ is fun to get. Especially in law school, where A+’s are so rare. At my school (and I think at virtually every law school though I have not verified this) an A+ has no special effect on your GPA. So a plain old “A” is treated the same as an “A+” for GPA purposes. And class ranking purposes. And everything that matters, outside of your own ego! Continue reading How I got A+’s in 55% of my law school classes.

Should I Study the Day of a Law School Exam?

Should I Study the Day of a Law School Exam?: It can be very tempting to want to wake up early the morning of an exam to get a few last hours of studying in. Try to resist this temptation!

You are likely going to feel stressed and overwhelmed that day (perfectly normal!), but you don’t want to do anything that could add to that.  If you’re feeling panicky and trying to frantically review information you probably already know, you risk unnecessarily confusing yourself.  You don’t want to risk altering what your brain has already stored correctly.  Trust yourself and the studying that you have already done!

One Month Until Law School Exams: How to Study

As the end of the semester approaches, it’s time to start thinking about the final exam.  Now that there’s only one month until law school exams, your focus should shift to how best to prepare.  You should not be spending as much time on cases. Cases will not help you do well on the exam.  Law school exams are not going to give you a fact pattern that mimics an already decided case.  The fact patterns tend to be long and incorporate many different issues, generally focusing on more grey areas that prompt you to interpret existing law.  This is why it is important for you to focus on learning the rules taught during the semester and then applying them to unfamiliar fact patterns. In this post, we tell you how to do that!
