  1. Have a study schedule.
  2. Continue your review of the MBE and essay subjects.
  3. Continue doing practice questions and reviewing essay questions and analyses.
  4. Study multiple areas of the law you struggle with. Try to get through many and make sure you don’t get caught up for too long with any one topic. The worst thing you can do is spend one of your last days on the Rule Against Perpetuities trying to hammer it down. The truth is, hardly anybody understands it! Just move on and get the low lying fruit.
  5. Update the law in your TOCs as necessary. Don’t get in the trap of doing practice questions to pass the time without getting the most out of each one. If you get a practice question wrong, make sure you note the legal issue you didn’t know in your TOC.
  6. Set aside time to recharge by taking breaks. Your dog would love to take a walk around the block! (If you don’t have a dog, then you would love to take a walk around the block!)
  7. Set aside time to create a logistics plan for the test. Think about what you will need to bring and eat, when you will leave for the exam, and how you will get to the testing site.
  8. Get sufficient sleep.
  9. Eat brain food. Skip the fast food and diet drinks!
  10. Try to relax a little. You’re probably stressed to the MAX right now, and trust us, we understand. Give yourself a break. Watch a movie, go for a swim, or take a yoga class!
