Imagery helps woman "freaked out" by bar exam

Dear Health Journeys,
I want to say thank you. When I scheduled myself to take the bar exam for my THIRD time, I was so totally freaked out and demoralized from the first two failed attempts, I was a mental case. Just thinking about it had me hyperventilating and breaking a sweat. (Not an exaggeration.) So I talked to a nice person at your shop, and she suggested I try BR’s Self-Confidence CD, plus the Memory CD of Martha Howard and Emmett Miller’s Learning CD.

I found them all very different, and there were times when I was in the mood for one and not the others and vice versa. Bottom line: after a lot of immersion in these CDs (and studying, of course, but I always studied, and it evidently wasn’t sinking in) I felt calm yet sharp during the exam - a new experience, for sure.

I now await the results, and, dare I say it?, I feel hopeful. I’ll let you know how I did. I desperately want to pass the bar. But regardless, I know for sure I was in much better shape during the exam experience and for that I thank you, come what may.
