    Sir, what were your references in the 8 BAR subjects during your review? And, what was your style in answering the BAR exam questions? Thank you in advance. God bless.

      I used San Beda Red Notes mostly. I made my own reviewers in Crim and Labor (patterned from the 2014 Syllabus). Also used ChanRobles notes in labor. I also read the handouts from PALS.

      As to style, I used the “Decisive Answer – Major Premise – Minor Premise – Conclusion” Style. So my answers in the bar would normally have 4 to 5 sentences.

        Can you share a sample of how you answer?
        How about in other subjects, what were your references?
        Your help will be highly appreciated Sir. Thank you po.

          I don’t have my notebooks yet. Not sure yet when and how to get them but I’ll try to look into my old notebooks in law school.

          For the other subjects, I just used the Bedan red notes. You can actually order from San Beda now for you to get their latest edition.

    I hope you can share your style in answering through a sample. Thanks in advance, and may you continue to be an inspiration to others. God bless.
