    I passed.

    You have no idea how good this feels. I'm quite literally crying tears of joy as I type this. I cannot thank you enough for everything that you helped me do in preparation for this test. I would love to write a recommendation for you.

  • 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.  

  • Scott Kalter, Esq., passed the July 2017 Cal Bar Exam

    I highly recommend Steven Harris' program for the California Bar Examination, whether it's your 1st time or your 5th time.  In fact, his materials will give you an advantage in any jurisdiction. 

  • Imran K., Esq., passed the July 2017 Cal Bar Exam

    I highly recommend Steve Harris’ program for California Bar Examination repeaters. His books WINNIN’ TIME! and The Trigger List are absolute must-haves for anyone who wants to pass this thing. There’s a lot of great things I could write about Steve’s wonderful program, but I’ll focus on some of the best things.

  • Cal Bar Exam pass rate INCREASES! Why? Read on...


    Hello everyone!

    Great news tonight for more Cal Bar Exam applicants this year.  49.6% passed July 2017, which is a 6% increase year over year from July 2016.


    One indicator, surprisingly enough from a nationwide perspective, was a nationwide (and California) INCREASED score on the MBE.

    From July 2013-2016, MBE scaled scores have been trending DOWN significantly.

  • Cal Bar Exam passing score will not change


    On October 18, 2017, the California Supreme Court concluded, "Based on that review and balancing all considerations, the court is not persuaded that the relevant information and data developed at this time weigh in favor of departing from the longstanding pass score of 1440."  Candidly, an odd result given the long and winding road that started with ABA law school Deans writing a letter, then testimony before the assembly, then standard setting studies, then the Supreme Court taking the unpre

  • Cal Bar Cut Score Study - report on July 31 Cal Bar Meeting


    Quick edit:  


    Just found Lyle Moran's (Daily Journal) statement about the two options to be considered for public comment between now and August 25:

    1. no change at all - cut score remains 1440.

    2. change cut score to 1414 for July 2017 ONLY and revisit cut score discussion after July 2017 results are released.

  • Army First Lieutenant passes the California Bar Examination

    Greetings Mr Harris, 

    I am ecstatic to report passing results on the Feb 2017 CA Bar Exam. Thank you for your dedication to this program and calling. I risked a lifetime of struggle to reach my military career goals by retaking the CA exam- and I could not be more grateful you made the time to include me as a student and prepare me. 

    If you have a PO Box I'd very much like to send you a thank you card. 

  • Big Law associate, Esq., passed February 2017

    Steven really knows the bar exam inside and out and has tons of tips and tricks that the large bar courses don't offer. His materials are on point and he really boils it down to the important stuff to help you focus on point generation. His one-on-one tutoring was personalized and tailored to me unlike the large bar courses' one-size fits all model and access to his knowledge helped answer many of the unknowns and questions I had about the bar.

  • Shar Giridharadas, Esq., passed February 2017

    I just passed the February 2017 CA Bar Exam on my second attempt following an attempt in July 2016.  I know that I would not have been able to pass without participating in Steven Harris’ tutoring program; it was instrumental in helping me to achieve a passing score for many reasons.
