The Mass bar exam is probably the most important exam for a law school graduate CISM exam. That being said, you should take no chances when studying for it. However, while the conventional logic states that you should sign up for an expensive bar exam course, I recommend that you forgo that option.
I am a lawyer, and I once was in your shoes studying for the bar exam. As an experienced veteran of this process, I can attest that the best method of studying for the Mass bar exam is to forget about courses, stressed out students, and scatter-brain lecturers.
Your best bet to pass the Mass bar exams is YOU and only you. Ignore BarBri or PMBR representatives. Their courses are simply ways for them to extract as much money from you as possible. Don’t let them do it!! Instead, all you need for efficient and effective preparation are the books and materials used in those courses and some sample exams and practice questions.
When I took a bar exam course three years ago, I ended up passing the exam by the skin of my teeth. Two of my friends, however, studied differently and passed with higher scores. One of them (who took the traditional course) spent almost all his time doing practice questions and essays. My other friend (who took the Mass bar exam) didn’t even take a bar exam course. He bought the books online, read them, and did hundreds of practice questions.
