What four-letter word strikes fear into the heart of law students across the country? Yep, you guessed it: EXAM.

Law school’s odd in that most, if not all, of your final grade will be based on a single exam at the end of the semester.

You won’t get a lot of feedback or practice before the first set of exams, and what you’re tested on bears little resemblance to what’s discussed in class, so it’s critical to understand what’s expected of you as early in the semester as possible.

The first section below explains at a high level why law school exams are so different, and has some basics on how to prepare for them. The next section explores how to stay calm and focused during exam prep. The final section gets into the nitty-gritty of different types of exams, so you’ll be able to prepare effectively.
