You will spend close to two months, take dozens of practice essays, and spend a good two or three days in the bar exam. About three to five minutes per essay, at most. For a grader to get through your essay in this short amount of time, it will need to be very readable. Now, if you really want to feel like a bar exam grader, repeat the exercise dozens of times at pm. You will be in a very similar situation to what the grader has to do, after spending a full day at work, coming home to his family, and is now trying to meet his deadline of reading bar exam essays this week. The easier you make it on him, the better.

My last post talked about where to find real MBE questions, and specifically about the books you can buy to study for the MBE.
