Do as many MBE practice questions as you possibly can. If you haven't signed up for the PMBR course, I highly recommend it. Scoring well on the MBE is key and that little bastard is curved. Seriously, PMBR is money. If you don't want to take the course, find a set of used PMBR books and go through every question in them. Then make sure to take at least one mock MBE. Sucks, but you've gotta set aside a full day for that one. Since the Bar Exam, in addition to being a poor indicator of how good of a lawyer you will actually be, is an exercise in endurance, you'll need to get a full MBE under your belt so that the real deal doesn't catch you off guard.
As far as the essays are concerned, remember that CO grades on a checklist. You can write the most beautiful, grammatically correct prose known to man, but if you aren't hitting all the points they want, you will get owned. Make sure that you vomit out as many points, including elements of the crimes that you can. They give multiple points for silly sh$t like "the elements of negligence are: duty, breach, causation, and injury." If you aren't taking BarBri, try to score a used copy of their essay practice book, it is really helpful because it has copies of past essays and gradesheets in it!
Sorry if I sound like I am lecturing here, but the bar is a nightmare, and passing it the first time is really important. You can do it - buckle down for the straightaway and kick it in the teeth! :thumbsup:
Oh, and for what it is worth, I suggest doing the Performance test first and the essays second (BarBri recommends this too) during the half-days on the first day. At the end of each half day your brain will be too cashed to do a good job on a long project like the Performance test. The essays require less writing and a lot of parroting so I think those are better suited for the end of the half days. Good Luck!
