The Barbri Repeater Conundrum...

Sooo today the Oregon Barbri class begins again... I am doing the class online, since their is no actual class here in Salem this time. What I am struggling with is what all I should do again and what I should forgo in the attempt of doing other things that might be more worthwhile to my studying... I am taking this course again because it is free. I took it last summer. How much of this should I really need all over again? How much of it really helped me the first time? Isn't the definition of insanity doing the same thing over again and expecting a different result? Sorry for the mass of jumbled and pointed questions that don't really fit or flow... Just needed to let some of this out and see if any of my readers might be able to provide some insight. I'm listening to the orientation lecture, which I don't know is completely pointless because I know what the Bar entails.. Obviously! Since I already took it in July. Anyway, I guess I should get back to it! Thinking I'm going to modify my study program a bit.


  1. Did you save your lecture handout book?
    I saved mine, so I have the "answer" (ie: fill in the blanks) from the lectures already. My plan is to just use that and start memorizing - rather than watching all the lectures again.

  2. I don't have an answer, but I'll be interested to see what you decide to do! I'm planning to take BarBri again for State#2 and while I want to replicate what I did before, that seems kind of redundant. Ugh. Dread the thought. Sending you wishes for lots of productivity!

  3. Have you read Legally Fabulous' post on this? http://legallyfabulous.blogspot.com/2011/11/so-youfailed-bar-exam.html

  4. I admire you! The whole thought of taking exams just makes me cringe. I always loved school, and started out college wanting to be a CPA. It's probably best I switched majors because taking the CPA exam would have terrified me!

    Good luck with everything!
