As a mom to a toddler during a pandemic, I was very nervous to write the Bar Exams. Studying seemed impossible while we were cooped up in a house with no childcare and no family or friends to help. I signed up for the Emond Exam Prep Online Course and watched the videos on my phone while I puttered around the house, waited at a drive-through, or fed the baby. It really helped to be able to hear the professors discuss the key points of each topic. I used the time I had to study my index and really get to know how to navigate the materials. I learned that these exams are as much about time management and organization as they are about knowing key points. Once I mastered knowing how to find information, practice tests became easier and my confidence grew.
My Top 3 Exam Tips:
- Get the practice exams and keep practising.
- The more you get to know the materials, the more confident you’ll feel.
- Know your test space and get to know the proctor process so you are ready on the day.
