This brief, witty book gives examinees a real taste of what the bar exam experience feels like, from the first day of bar prep through the exam days themselves. Michael Stockman provides examples from his own experience taking the NY and MA bar exams in 2010 and 2011. The author shares strategies he devised to manage BarBri, the prep courses he took twice, explaining the strategies that worked for him, from how to get organized to specific advice about condensing notes. He offers study tips and practical advice about test days (such as what to bring) and how to manage stress and anxiety. In addition to a chapter for LLM students, there is a chapter for older test takers and those returning to the law.
