I was a lawyer 8 years out of law school and already a member of the New York bar when I failed the February 2016 California Bar attorney’s exam. I knew that I had put long hours into studying using an online course, and so I was left bewildered by how things could have gone so terribly wrong. Steven came highly recommended to me by a friend who had also failed once and then passed after receiving tutoring from him. She had nothing but wonderful things to say about him.
This program is perfect for repeaters and people working while studying for the Bar. As a member of both groups, I needed a program that would give me what I needed to pass. I didn't have time to read thousands of pages of outlines while working full time and studying at night. This program teaches mainly through practice questions and personalized feedback.
I was a Pennsylvania-licensed attorney with almost ten years of experience at some of the nation’s top law firms when I failed the February 2016 CA Bar Exam. I took a popular bar review course and it simply wasn’t enough given my distance from law school. Steven was the difference the second time around. If you’re a repeat test taker, you must hire Steven. If you’re taking the California Bar for the first time, and are more than five years out of law school, you must hire Steven.
Steven’s system works. Two of my friends were repeaters and they both passed the bar exam with Steven’s guidance. I followed their lead and hired Steve in hopes that he would lead me to success as well. While I took the bar exam, I worked part t
Congrats to those of you who finished the bar exam today!

As a law firm partner who recently relocated to California, I found Steve's program the best and most conducive for someone working full-time and for someone who has been out of law school for over ten years. His WINNIN' TIME! book provided a concise outline of the subjects to master for the California bar exam and provided great templates that were helpful in structuring the essays in a manner that the California graders want to see. His Trigger List book, along with his essay review, enables one to consistently be able to identify issues on the essays and write passing ans
A friend recommended Steven to me & I'm so glad I listened. Steven's tutoring program provided structure I needed, he made studying for the bar seem more manageable, he held me accountable, and gave me useful, constructive feedback during our weekly meetings. If you're looking for a tutor, I highly recommend Steven. -- Rachel Diggs, Esq., passed the February 2016 California Bar Examination
Steven Harris was my number one cheerleader throughout the entire bar prep process, but he never sugar coated anything, which is exactly what a repeat taker needs. The WINNIN' TIME! book was a lifesaver, and the mnemonics – as crazy as they were – actually worked for memorization purposes. I really wish I had the WINNIN' TIME! book when I was a 1L, but you can’t win ‘em all! (Pun intended). And most importantly, Steven's memorization plan for the bar was essentially flawless.
I'm getting home late and have work early in the morning but I want you to know that my name is on the pass list. I really want to thank you for all the help you gave me; it got me through one of the hardest things I've ever done. I will recommend your program to whoever is looking for bar tutoring. I really did learn valuable approaches from you and it made the difference for me.
SAN FRANCISCO, May 13, 2016, 6 p.m. — The State Bar of California's Committee of Bar Examiners reported today that 35.7 percent of the applicants passed the February 2016 General Bar Examination (GBX).

There are many bar prep programs and tutors out there that will give you a schedule and a bunch of material to study to prep you for the exam. Steve Harris aims to get you inside the mind of the grader and break down the inside baseball of what the examiners actually want you to give them so you can see past the tricks, avoid frequent pitfalls, pass the exam, and get on with your career.
A month before the California Bar, I was still unable to complete a Performance Test. I knew I could not pass without mastering the PT, so I turned to Professor Harris for help on July 15, which was four days after his PT Class ended. After I registered for the course, he sent me the lectures within a half-hour. Within a week, his technique and words of wisdom put me on the path to success. I passed! -- Kastle Lund-Turner, Esq., passed the July 2015 California Bar Examination
I passed on my second attempt thanks to Steven Harris’s program. I am a foreign attorney dually qualified in England and Singapore and Steven's methods helped me focus on exactly what I needed to do to pass the California Bar Examination. I also worked full-time up until 2 weeks before the exam.
A note of context for those who were unsuccessful on the July 2015 Cal Bar Exam:
You are not alone.
