  • Lorena Garcia, Esq. - The Trigger List

    If you are having difficulty issue spotting, The Trigger List is the book for you.  The essay portion of the exam is all about issue-spotting.  This was something I struggled with a lot.  After writing a practice essay, I would then use The Trigger List to see which words or phrases applied to each issue.  

  • Lorena Garcia, Esq - WINNIN' TIME!

    WINNIN' TIME! is awesome.  This book has all the outlines that you will need to study.  The outlines are also a few pages long unlike like those huge outlines found in the conviser or other books.  This book is also helpful because it teaches you how to attack different types of essays questions and provides you with a time frame to follow so you can finish the exam on time.  It also includes Boilerplates (Roadmaps) on how to write certain exam questions which I applied during the exam.

  • MBE scores up nationally on February 2019

    Apr
    24

    The national average score on the Multistate Bar Exam—the multiple-choice portion of the test—increased by 1.2 points to 134 for the February 2019 test, according to the National Conference of Bar Examiners. That represents the first increase in the mean February MBE score since 2013, which was followed by a five-year slide in bar exam pass rates.

  • No immediate plans to change cut score; two new studies to be completed Summer 2019

    Dec

    From the National Law Journal, published today.  Upshot:  definitely no changes to the Cal Bar cut score for February 2019 or July 2019.  As to the future, who knows.  As my old accounting professor used to say, nothing exists until it does.

    If you want to pass the CA Bar then you have to understand the Bar and what graders expect out of you. That’s where Steve comes in. I highly recommend Steve to keep you on top of your studies, for his feedback, constructive criticism, and to keep you honest with yourself during your bar exam preparations. He has a method and if you stick to it, you’ll pass.

    I’m so glad I used Steven’s tutoring services. I didn’t have the best grades in law school despite feeling as though I studied as much as my peers. Given this experience, I knew I had to do something different than the standard bar prep program course to pass the California bar exam. That’s how I found Steven. 

    Steven’s program provides the greatest guidance on the essay portion of the bar. He tailors his program for your study pace, and offers much-needed TOUGH love.

  • JVF, Esq.

    "When I first contacted Steven Harris I had just recently found out I
    did not pass the July 2009 bar, it was a stressful time to say the
    least. During the course of our conversation I told Steve of my
    woeful essay and performance test scores. Steve assured me that
    he could help. Then I told Steve that my wife was pregnant and that
    my daughter was due to be born the week before the February
    2010 Bar, bad timing, yet Steve reassured me that he could help
    me so long as I followed a personalized plan he would craft for me.

  • S.R., Esq., passed the February 2018 California Bar Examination (lowest pass rate in at least 67 years!)

    May 18, 2018 will always be one of the most memorable days of my life because, thanks to Steven, I passed the California bar!!! I was a high achiever in law school, and I did well in every single class, so when I failed the July 2017 exam, I was heartbroken and felt defeated.

  • S.J., Esq., passed the February 2018 California Bar Examination (lowest pass rate in at least 67 years!)

    This was my first time taking the CA bar exam and the second bar exam I have taken. I knew I needed a tutor to help me stay on track since I would be working while studying. I was particularly looking for a tutor with an outstanding essay preparation program and trusted in Steven at the recommendation of a former classmate and after hearing about his rigorous essay writing schedule, essay review week, PT program and prior experience teaching for Barbri. I am happy to say I passed the exam and I largely attribute my success to the essay skills I learned from Steven. 

  • Monica B., Esq., passed the February 2018 California Bar Examination (lowest pass rate in at least 67 years!)

    After failing the Bar the first time, a good friend recommended that I talk to Steven.  After our first conversation on the phone, I knew that I wanted to work with him.  Steven was incredibly supportive and confident as we moved through bar prep together. 

     

  • Y.N., Esq., passed the February 2018 California Bar Exam (lowest pass rate since at least 1951!)

    Trust the process!  Seriously.  I highly recommend Steven Harris as a tutor.  His tips and tricks made the bar exam so much more approachable and less daunting the second time around. 

    The first time I took the bar exam, I had failed by a very small margin.  I was upset and disappointed.  Steven understood everything I was going through and was there to pick up the pieces and was so instrumental in helping me move forward.

  • Ally Bragg, Esq., WINNIN' TIME!

    Steven's guidance and book, WINNIN' TIME!, were instrumental in my success in passing the July 2017 California Bar Exam. Steven taught a Critical Studies class at UC Hastings, where he taught us the best way to write bar essays. Prior to his class, I did not know the examiners were looking for a particular format or method.

  • Robin Courtney, Esq., passed the July 2017 California Bar Examination

    Steven’s one-on-one tutoring was the essential element which enabled me to clear the hurdle of passing the July 2017 California Bar Exam.  Specifically, Steven’s technique of issue spotting by reviewing 100’s of sample bar exam hypotheticals and using his “Trigger Method” reduced my fear of issue spotting on the essay section of the exam and gave me the confidence I needed to pass.  I highly recommend hiring Steven as a tutor.  His approach is comprehensive and will significantly increase your chances of passing the exam.

  • Kerri Riley, Esq. - WINNIN' TIME!: purchased in late June, good news in November!

    I want to let you know that I purchased WINNIN' TIME! back on June 26, 2017 -- 29 days before the Bar Exam -- and I am ecstatic to report that I passed the July bar on my first try.

    I truly attribute my success to your method and content.  I cannot thank you enough! -- Kerri Riley, Esq., passed the July 2017 California Bar Examination

  • Jennifer (last name withheld at applicant's request), Esq., passed the July 2017 California Bar Examination

    Knowing that my chances of passing the CA Bar the 1st time were even lower than most applicants since I attended an unaccredited online law school, I fortunately came across Steven's website as I considered hiring a tutor.   He fit me in as a new student and promptly sent me the WINNIN’ TIME! book.  As I skimmed it, I realized I had struck gold.  The book alone would have been worth the cost of tutoring for me as it became my "Bible" in the months and weeks prior to the July 2017 exam.
