Everyday I Write the Book
If you are gearing up for final exams or the February Bar, one of the most helpful things to do while studying is keep a "Big Book of Things I Did Not Know."
Basically, as you go over practice answers, keep a legal pad of reasons why you got an answer wrong (or right for the wrong reason). Keep it short. So, for example, you might write "Only defendants can remove to federal court." Every evening, work on memorizing that list.
By doing this, you should never not know those things again. In my experience, students who do this drastically improve their performance on exams and the bar. (Alex Ruskell)
