Hi 

I am planning on writing my bar exams in June. I will be getting my studying material in March. However, I am currently unemployed and wanted to utilize my time and wanted to familiarize myself with the material. I know that they tend to change the syllabus, but I am not sure how often they do it. Does anyone here has any suggestions?

Don't waste your time. It's the better part of a year away and the tests are mostly a matter of being able to flip through the material quickly. Wait until the material for your exams come and then update  old indexes or make your own. In the six months or so before that, look for a job or do something you'll enjoy if money isn't a concern.

Hm, okay thanks for your reply.

If I were in your shoes I would utilize the time to get to know the material even if it's 10-20 pages a day. Some areas are quite dense and require a few read throughs to digest the concept. It's better to know it and be confident in your answer than waste precious time flipping through during the exam. The material wont't have changed that much either. The other advantage is you'll get a sense of what areas you're confident in and what areas might take you longer. This will allow you to make a solid study plan and keep the nerves at bay on test day.

You don't have access to the materials until you are registered for the licensing process and pay your fees.

You can ask someone for their old materials they might have a pdf version or you can ask the law society.  Keep in mind the page numbers will be different from your actual materials so I would not recommend spending time indexing. Read for content.

Thanks for the information.. I will try to email the Law Society or if there is somebody who share his old study materials.. It will be gladly appreciated.
