“How you think when you lose determines how long it will be until you win.”

Do not put too much weight on a bar prep program’s pass lists. The pass lists are misleading because most bar examinees are not loyal to use only one bar prep resource. The reason for why a person passes may be because of another resource the person used at the same time.
It is not recommended to use only one resource. Each resource is limited by the experience and knowledge of the author. Use several resources to learn the tips of different bar prep professionals.

Study materials do not necessarily need to be designated bar prep resources. They can be hornbooks, law school textbooks, and outlines from law school finals.
Take advantage of academic support programs at law schools. Some law school professors may volunteer their time even when the school does not have an official bar prep program.
