Can I take bathroom breaks?
What about cheating?
What about the MBE? How many questions? Is it all on a screen?
What if I’m handwriting?
Uh, yeah, I’m sure you have a lot of questions.

Take a look if you’re wondering when to study for the bar exam, whether you should start studying now or later, so you can start planning contingencies at least.
In the meantime, I’ve been cooking up some sweet new material for you. Look forward to it starting the third weekend of November!
