If you’re taking the February bar exam, you’re likely knee-deep study mode at this time. But the question we like to ask our bar students is: Are you studying for the bar exam in the right way? Sure, there are lots of ways to study and techniques to use. But if your’e not using the right methods for you, all your hard work may not pay off. So what is the right way to study for the bar exam? Lee recently shared some guidance and tips for studying the right way over on About.com. Here’s what you will find there:
- How Do You Study for the Bar Exam? When it comes to actually sitting down to study for the bar exam, often, students aren’t sure where to begin. What exactly are you supposed to do each day that you study for the bar? Turns out, that is an excellent question.
- How Can Active Learning Techniques Help You Study for the Bar Exam? When a student talks about the way they are studying for the bar exam, we almost always have the same comment: “You should be doing more active learning and less passive learning.” But often, students are unsure what active learning actually is? How is it different from active learning?
- Is Listening to Hours of Bar Exam Lectures the Best Use of Your Time? If you are studying for the bar exam for the first time, it is likely you signed up for a commercial bar review course. That course likely includes hours of recorded lectures. Some bar studiers will spend over 100 hours of their study time listening to lectures. Is this the best use of your time? As with most questions surrounding anything law related, the answer is, it depends.
