Developing Bar Exam Skills

Preparation—not just information—is crucial to success on the bar exam. Those individuals who prepare themselves mentally, physically, and logistically for the test—and even for the preparation process itself—have a much greater likelihood of performing at their best when the pressure is on. Students must be ready not only to recall legal rules but to communicate articulately, even in the face of the inevitable uncertainty that arises when facing a new fact pattern on exam day.

That's why the BarRev approach helps students prepare on many different levels, developing not only the academic knowledge—memorization of the law may be the easier part—but also numerous skills that are integral to success, namely:

Writing—The written portions of the exam make up most of one's score
Reading comprehension—One must learn to glean the key facts from each stimulus
Test-taking—Effective time investment often separates those who pass from those who don't
Reasoning—Logic skills are crucial to writing good arguments as well as weeding through MBE answer choices
