Skeletal Outlines - Write your skeletal outline of the course on a blank piece of paper as soon as the exam begins. A skeletal outline is an organized list of principles and issues, created by you, which relates to a given area of the law. Think about the outline you have been creating all semester, but now reduce it down to a page or two – this is your skeletal outline. Writing out this list will give you a few moments to compose your thoughts before digging into the exam. TIP: If you cannot write your skeletal outline for a course from memory the day before the exam, you do not know the material well enough!
Instructions - Read the exam instructions closely! When the exam starts, take a deep breath, slow yourself down, write your skeletal outline, and read the instructions.
Organization - Before answering an essay question, outline and organize your response. Students who perform well on law school exams take the time to read through the entire essay question, create a list of the various issues contained therein, and then take a few more minutes to separate out the major issues from the minor ones. This approach will give you a better sense of how much time you have to complete your entire answer.
