EARLY START PACED PROGRAM


9 15 Hours/Week

HOW TO USE THE EARLY START PACED PROGRAM


The schedule below is designed to give you a jump start reviewing substantive law for
the subjects that will most likely be tested on the bar exam thereby freeing up more time
in the last few weeks to work on developing writing skills and practice. All subjects
reviewed in the Early Start will be tested on the multiple-choice section of the exam, the
MBE.
The Early Start Paced Program is meant to be a weekly schedule. You should try to
accomplish the tasks anytime during the week as time permits. Keep in mind that
subjects do not need to be done in order. It is recommended that you start with your
weakest subject in law school and keep in mind that it should take you approximately two
weeks to review each subject. For most effective use, please limit yourself to 2 or 3
BARBRI AMP modules in one day.
NOTE: Once classes begin, you should utilize your Personal Study Plan to guide you.
Since you began your studies early, you may have completed assignments, therefore
you should simply check those assignments as mastered and move on!
BARBRI AMP (Online Legal Learning Application) is a powerful, interactive bar
prep application that helps you learn the law faster and retain it longer. Using a proven
method of test-learn-retest, BARBRI AMP rapidly builds your understanding of black
letter rules of law, which is critical to your success on the bar. We recommend that you
work BARBRI AMP questions, before you listen to the lecture in a given subject.
However, some students prefer to work BARBRI AMP questions after a lecture. To
access BARBRI AMP, please log in to your account at www.barbri.com and in the
Enrolled Student Center, click on the BARBRI AMP menu option.
LECTURES are available when you log in to the Enrolled Student Center at
www.barbri.com and click on the Early Start Bar Review menu option. The lectures
below cover multistate subjects as they will be tested on the MBE, with state-specific
distinctions as will be tested on your essay exam, if applicable. Additional multistate
subject lectures with corresponding handouts will be posted as they become available.
