@jouissance:  I kind of enjoy not having anywhere I have to be all day.  Working on my own schedule, etc.  It has convinced me I need to find a job where I can work from home haha.

Just keep following your prep course timeline.  Do PMBR practice questions, but don’t freak yourself out by doing too many practice essays – I would recommend doing them just to get a feel for the time limit.

I definitely agree about the ear plugs.  The last thing you need is to be distracted because the person behind you is tapping their foot/pencil/whatever.  I took the bar in a huge convention center with no carpeting and EVERY noise echoed. 

Try not to post-mortem for more than a few minutes.  Try to go outside and get some fresh air and NOT think about the exam during your lunches.  Avoid anyone who’s having or about to have a panic attack.  Staying calm is the name of the game.

And above all else, remember – they’re testing your competency, not your ability to remember every element of every tort known to man.  Don’t put pressure on yourself to ace it.
