Ivy Letters: Meditations for Resilient (repeat) Bar Examinees
5.0 out of 5 stars (Amazon) By A. Carvalho
Finally a book I can relate to!
The author is inspiring and takes the shame out of repeating the bar exam.
At the end of the day, it’s still just an exam. And it does not define you, as a ‘smart’ or ‘good’ or ‘worthy’ person. Thank you for recognizing it doesn’t matter how many times you take the exam. The license is the end goal.
Ivy Letters: Practical Advice on Passing the Bar Exam
5.0 out of 5 stars (Amazon) By James Reynolds
Brilliantly Helpful and Uniquely Insightful
I wish that I had this book when I was studying for the bar exam. It would have been of immense help both in terms of learning how to approach the various sections of the bar exam, as well as how to prepare mentally for the exam.
I recommend anyone preparing for the bar exam to read the MPT section as the author does a wonderful job of instructing on how to approach the MPT without being overwhelmed – an issue with many bar exam takers. Additionally, I highly recommend everyone read the section on Exam Day Anxiety.
This is a very common problem among bar exam takers and there needs to be more out there addressing it, and I’m glad the author takes on this task. I myself had exam day anxiety and believe I would have handled it much more easily had I known these tips for approaching exam day.
Again, a must-read if you are preparing for the bar exam, as this book is a holistic, well-rounded approach to passing!
