One of the classic books on writing is "The Elements of Style" by Strunk & White. In today's Episode, Jackson uses the principles of this work to show you a better way to write your essays for the bar exam.

Episode 63 Show Notes:

In today's Episode, we take a look at the process of answering multiple choice questions for the Multistate Bar Exam. During this Periscope Encore, Jackson describes the traditional method of working through an MBE Question and then, based on recent research about learning and testing, describes a different - and far more effective - way to reach the correct answer. It's information you'll want before you take the MBE!
