Preparing for Success: Balancing Vision and Action in Bar Exam Preparation
In this episode of Celebration Bar Review, we look at the strategies and approaches for bar exam preparation with about 85 days to go. The host emphasizes the need for law students to balance between studying for long-term proficiency (looking far ahead) and satisfying immediate study goals (looking close). Drawing parallels to teaching driving to kids, the host cautions against being overly focused on immediate results and encourages students instead gauge their progress in terms of improvements over time.
He also warns against procrastination - advising students who haven't started studying to do so now, consistently. The host asserts that it typically takes about 300 hours to prepare for the bar exam and discourages trying to rush preparation in a six-week crash course.
Importantly, the host highlights the need for continuous improvement, encouraging students to start building momentum now for success in the bar exam in 85 days.
