Almost only one month left until the bar exam! I have finished my Themis lectures and now am focusing on going over the lectures with my Critical Pass flashcards. My approach will be to write down the notes from the lectures on the flashcards so that all of the information is in one place (meaning that I would not have to look at my lecture notes from Themis again).Themis has 2 lecture books plus the detailed outline books for both the MEE and MBE subjects.

Themis has two lecture books plus the detailed outline books for both the MEE and MBE subjects. I think that this approach might be helpful -- to put notes on the Critical Pass flashcards from the lectures. On the other hand, trying to finish all of the lectures first quickly may not have been a good idea. I am still very behind when it comes to doing practice questions. But, I hope to catch up soon and just focus on practicing.
I have noticed that breaking down the information from the lectures is helpful when it comes to retaining the information. I do want to see how this technique will help me when it comes to doing the practice questions. The space on the side of the flashcards is great, plus I used the extra blank flashcards to put in some additional topics. Also, for the MBE questions, I type the rule statement and notes in an Excel Spreadsheet (which is divided by the topics). Every week I can review this spreadsheet for the relevant rules.
It seems like yesterday that I graduated and now time is running out.The bar exam is just around the corner! Many people say that practice is the key… and I regret not following that advice yet.
