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.

Episode 18: Show Notes

In today's episode I tackle one of the biggest, most persistent and ultimately, most harmful myths about studying and taking the bar exam: issue spotting. If you take one of the "BigBox" bar reviews, you'll have issue spotting pounded into your brain and if you listen to the law school professors you'll be sure it's the 'only' way to pass the exam. 

The problem? It's just not true. The bar exam is nothing like law school and issue spotting is a gigantic waste of time, energy and words. In this episode I'll explain why you should avoid issue spotting on your bar exam!

In upcoming episodes I'll be counting up through all ten myths that destroy productivity and keep bar takers from passing the exam.

Episode 17: Show Notes

If you just finished your bar exam you're probably wondering, "what now?" That's a great question and in today's Podcast, I'll address one of the big concerns - should you post-mortem your exam?

As you'll learn, the waiting period until bar exam results are released can be a time of frustration - or can be put to good use - and this episode will help. 

I've also just written a new blog post on this topic called: "5 Things to Do While You Wait for Your Bar Exam Results" and you'll want to check that out as well.

After listening to this episode, what do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts, questions and experiences about the bar exam and the post-mortem process.

Episode 16: Show Notes

Is the bar exam the same as a law school final? Should you prepare for the bar exam as you studied for finals in school? Isn't the bar exam just the final test of law school? If you answered "Yes" to any of those questions, you're going to want to be sure to listen to today's episode from my series "Top 10 Bar Exam Myths" I talk about Myth #4: "It Worked in Law School."

You'll learn what makes the bar exam vastly different from a law school test and why the study and testing habits you had in law school will be of substantially less value in passing the bar. 

In upcoming episodes I'll be counting up through all ten myths that destroy productivity and keep bar takers from passing the exam.

Episode 15: Show Notes

The Bar Exam tests your knowledge of the law, but just knowing the law is never enough to pass. Over the years I've seen countless numbers of bar takers focus exclusively on memorizing and reciting the rules of law and then discover that the skill being tested on the bar exam was actually something different. 

How can that be? As you listen to today's message from my series "Top 10 Bar Exam Myths" I talk about Myth #5: "Know the Law Cold!"It may shake you up but it's a message you absolutely don't want to miss!

In upcoming episodes I'll be counting up through all ten myths that destroy productivity and keep bar takers from passing the exam.
