Oral Exam Starting Note : You walk in the door PASSING. You have 70 minutes to prove them otherwise. Statistically, your best chance for passing is the 1 st time you take it. The ABA’s general recommendations are: Study, especially the topics you are the least comfortable with. Practice daily. Use your daily cases as a chance to talk though your plan. Read journal articles.

Behavior Good eye contact. Speak up. Act professional. Do not argue with the examiners. Give the examiners a firm handshake at the beginning and the end of the exam, even if you feel that you did poorly. Avoid slang and informality. Don’t play with your pen, jewelry, etc. Look the examiners in the eye and talk with them like a colleague.
