How to study for the bar exam

How should a person preparing for the bar exam—or for black-letter law school courses such as those taught to 1Ls—master a subject's legal rules as efficiently as possible? After spending hundreds of hours tutoring law students and bar examinees, I've come up with the following method: Build momentum by starting with one or two MBE subjects that interest you, then gradually add additional subjects. There is too much material on the bar exam to try to study everything at once when you first begin preparing for the exam.
