  • TODAY'S THE DAY!

    Nov
    16

    Good luck to all that took the July 2012 California Bar Examination!  I hope you get good news tonight.

    For those that didn't, internalize the result for a half hour, and then do something about it.  I can help you generate points on the essays, PTs, and even the MBE (yes, 1-on-1 tutoring on the MBE!).

    So I hope it's time to celebrate!  But if it's not, then let's regroup, help you create a plan, and then generate the necessary points to pass.

    Good luck!

  • Oakland location power problems during the California Bar Examination

    Aug
    06

    This is why I advise my students to practice an exam and simulate a power issue (at minute 35, assume the power is out, and handwrite the rest of the exam).  Get a bluebook, rewrite the last paragraph you typed, and keep going.  This should be stocks going down 20 points, not 2000 points.

  • YAY! They're back... well, kinda.

    Jul
    22

    The Bar's web site for past exams is back:

    http://admissions.calbar.ca.gov/Examinations/PastExams.aspx

    Well, at least the 2007 - present exams are.  If you have any interest in reviewing them during the next few days of bar exam testing, I'd suggest downloading them immediately.

    At this point, however, I doubt you'll need them.  You know what you know at this point!  Cramming 36 hours before you're tested on 15 finals on the same day is pointless and impossible.

  • Late June Supreme Court cases' impact on July 2012 Cal Bar Exam?

    Jun
    25

    As the immigration (Arizona law largely struck down on preemption grounds), free speech in elections (corporate campaign spending limits rejected), and health care (forthcoming) decisions are handed down by the Supreme Court today and this week, the inevitable question looms:  should July Cal Bar applicants care?

    In two words:  probably not.

  • The Cal Bar STOLE Essays and Performance Tests from you... I FOUND THEM.

    Jun
    08

    Hello Bar Exam Community!

    For reasons unknown, the State Bar of California yesterday removed all Essay questions, sample answers, and PTs and sample answers from Feb. 2002 - July 2006.  Why?  Who knows.

    One of my tutoring students called the Cal Bar and was told that everyone would have an opportunity to send a letter and PAY to receive copies of the exams... at some undefined point in time.

  • The State Bar of California Erased FIVE YEARS OF ESSAYS AND PERFORMANCE TESTS from its web site!

    Jun
    08

    On June 7, 2012, the State Bar of California removed electronic access to its essays and PTs from the Feb. 2002 - July 2006 California Bar Examination.  Baby Bar essays too.

    I'm sure it's not intentional.  Regardless, what a great message to send.  We're going to remove 10 Bar exams from our free site in the middle of the bloody Bar season.  Good luck, suckers!

    Don't fret for me:  I have hard copies from 1993 - present.  And you can best believe that I will provide access to the five years of evidently verboten questions as soon as I can get them scanned.

  • Brian Yosowitz, Esq. - The Trigger List

    Steven Harris’ The Trigger List is a very high-level study guide that will definitely help you with passing the California Bar. The book alone is very much like a personal tutor because it shows you how to look at the test from a completely different perspective. When I first bought this book I was slightly skeptical but after completing the Essay Review Week I realized what a huge benefit it was.

  • Brian Yosowitz, Esq. - MBE Primers and Flowcharts

    MBE Primers And Flowcharts makes taking the MBE much easier. MBE Primers and Flowcharts demystifies the subtle nuances between questions and clearly states what to look for and what will be the right answer. I personally looked at one subject a day for a month before the bar and when I finally got to the test the MBE section was much clearer and I understood what to look for in each question. Steven also gives some great tips as to what to look for and what to be careful of on the MBE section of the bar. This is a great book for MBE section and will improve your score.

    From the Himalayas to Houston to California... a point-generating journey like no other.

  • Shirley Boyd, Esq.

    If Steven’s tutoring program needed a poster child, then hands down, that would be me. I had everything stacked against me. Repeater, non ABA school, and special student, which means no undergrad degree and I had to take and pass the baby bar during law school.

    Memorizing endless outlines, does not work for me, but the way Steve’s book WINNIN' TIME! lays out all the rules for you makes it easier to manage and to compartmentalize the information in your head.

    Jun

    Steven Harris' book WINNIN' TIME! is by far the best bar prep book out there. This book puts all the rules a format that you can memorize and type exactly into your test answers. WINNIN' TIME! explains the psychology behind the bar graders and explains exactly how to structure your answers. This book also provides boilerplates for subjects you are guaranteed to get on the bar as well as subjects that are always going to be structured the same way. If you want to pass the bar buy this book!

    Steven's Performance Test class is essential for anyone struggling with the Performance Test. After several attempts at taking the
    California bar, I was becoming discouraged because my Performance Test scores were consistently flat, hindering my ability to pass.
