Episode 36 Show Notes:

In today's episode Jackson reviews some of the research about effective and ineffective study habits and applies that to the bar review. You'll find out whether it's better to study in a quiet or a noisy place, to study in the same location or vary your environment, whether to cram or learn over a longer period of time. 

You may be surprised at what the experts in educational research are discovering about what works and does not work when it comes to high stakes test preparation. Today's episode is one you won't want to miss.

Episode 34: Show Notes

There's an ironic truth that those who fail their bar exams are often the same individuals who insist that they know the proper way to study and prepare. Common sense suggests that an unsuccessful test result would lead to an open mind and a willingness to be taught better ways to prepare and study.

Still, for many bar takers, failure becomes a kind of 'cement' that locks them into patterns of failure and despair. In this episode, we'll look at the importance of being teachable as a vital component of achieving bar exam peace and success on the exam!

One other note about this episode: At the time of the original recording we offered a free 30-day trial that you'll hear mentioned. That offer is no longer available, however. we do provide a Satisfaction Guarantee and Pass Guarantee for all our courses as well as a $97/month for 12 month offer that we invite you to check out on our website.
