Taking a Bar Review Course: It depends on how focused and structured U are.
For California, I would not recommend it unless U are extremely focused, structured and self-critical. If U can ruthlessly score Urself and redo whatever U missed and U have the time and concentration to study for hours on end, it is feasible. TU can buy the Bar Review courses directly from Bar-Bri for 1/3 of the price. It is important to get updated ones. Also, go over the released questions and whatever is highlighted in the books SCRUPULOUSLY.
I took the Illinois Bar (and passed it) without taking Bar-Bri. I don't know anyone else who has done this and I believe it is because it is quite nerve wrecking to not know how U are doing vis a vis Ur peers. However, not knowing if I was doing well, egged me to study more. 42% of my peers failed that Bar. But I studied 16 hours per day, and focused on the courses I did not take in Law School first, and in the end ran out of time for the courses I had outlined faithfully (and daily) in Law School, which were on the Bar but for which I was fortunately quite prepared.
The MBE is very important even though U might read reviews about it being only 35% of the exam so, whichever method U choose, do not neglect it. Even in California. Good Luck.

Hello Sir good article i really love it i have reading this article is awesome so good work keep working.

Vivian's course is a joke. You've been warned. Don't be like me and figure it out when it's too late.

I think our entire class of 20 failed after taking Vivian's course. I didn't see any of their names on the pass list! How embarrasing. There must be something she's doing wrong.

Spend life with who makes you happy, not who you have to impress.

Envy is part of human nature-- nothing good or bad about the envy.

The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought youd have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you werent too busy looking for attention.

S19RqA I would add something else, of course, but in fact almost everything is mentioned!...

I really like your blog and i respect your work. I’ll be a frequent visitor.

Would it be possible to PM me and tell me few more thinks about this. I am really a fan of your blog.

that is nice and its so awesome from some one can get helpfull from it.

The Sharks currently use "Seek & Destroy" by Metallica as their entrance song.
Any time the Sharks go on the power play, the Jaws theme song is played while the fans do "The Chomp," extending their arms in front and moving them up and down to form a chomping jaw. The song played after each goal is an instrumental version of "Rock and Roll Part 2" by Gary Glitter.

I had this website saved a while in the past but my computer crashed.
