Know thyself. Do you like multiple choice tests? I'm pretty good at standardized multiple choice tests, so I knew I wouldn't need it. Plenty of people do, but I think most people just take it for fear of failing. I had a close friend take the pmbr, she told me about some strategy "tricks" that she learned. I didn't think they were particularly helpful. For the most part, if you study hard, you'll pass. For the record, I didn't take pmbr, and I passed just fine.
Regarding the bar, I give the same advise as I do for 1L's. Try to physically separate yourself from your peers. It's easy to get caught up in the hype that is the bar or law school. But you know what, you've gotten this far and you've done well for yourself. You already know how to study, you know what works and what doesn't. Soon, you'll know what you need to know, and when. Just keep doing whatever it is that you've been doing. Studying for the bar doesn't have to be an extremely stressful time.
