    The Short Review: What Steven Did For Me
  • Elyse Rivas, Esq.

    I was a two-time bar loser, and totally defeated. I thought that there was nothing I could do to help me pass the Bar.  I even thought that I might have a learning disability because no matter how hard I tried, I could not maintain all the information that the CA Bar expects their applicants to memorize and apply.

  • Molly Franck, Esq. – 3d Time Was a Charm!

    Hi Steven!
     
    I just wanted to drop you a line to say “Thank You” and let you know that I passed the July 2013 CA Bar Exam!
     
    As you know, this was my third consecutive attempt, and I think that taking your Performance Test Workshop and utilizing your step-by-step essay review plan during the last 10 days prior to the bar exam REALLY MADE THE DIFFERENCE!
     
    I also purchased both of your books, WINNIN' TIME! and The Trigger List and found those aids to be an essential part of my study repertoire.  
  • Adam McConney, Esq - WINNIN' TIME! and The Trigger List

    I received copies of Steven HarrisWINNIN' TIME! and The Trigger List as part of my enrollment in his California Bar tutoring program. I highly recommend both books to Bar exam applicants, as well as law students.

  • Nicole Richardson, Esq. - passed on the 7th try!

    Hello Steve:
     
    I just wanted to give you some wonderful news! I went ahead and took the bar exam (I did call them after my grandfather's passing and because he was an immediate family member, they would have credited the entire amount). But because the funeral was the Friday after the exam, I took the exam anyway.

    For the first time that I can recall (and I go back 15 years), the Cal Bar explicitly stated a date in whch it "expects" to post sample answers for the July 2013 Cal Bar Exam.  Per the "Information for Unsuccessful Applicants" Memo, at 4:  "Selected Answers from the July 2013 administration are expected to be available online by December 20, 2013."

  • Mike Olsen, Hastings 2L - huge increase in school rank! WINNIN' TIME!

    WINNIN' TIME! helped me excel during 1L. This book is a must have for first year law students.  Indeed, because I used Steven’s book, I easily moved from the top half of my class in my first semester to the top 15% of my class in my second semester.  Steven’s succinct formulation of the rules and compartmentalization of the information through issue clustering make this book a winner.  WINNIN' TIME! made organization of material in my own course outlines almost effortless.  I saved time outlining, but more importantly, I made outlines that were useful to me.

  • Upload first, drink later!

    Good luck on the last day of the Bar Exam!  Now that you're done (by the time you see this), make sure you upload!  Video your upload, or take a screen shot of your upload, or take a picture of the screen that shows you properly uploaded your exam.  The bars won't run out of alcohol in your town - PROMISE!  Don't leave this to Friday morning.  Get it done NOW!

  • Brianna Penna, Esq.

    I highly recommend Steven Harris’ program if you are taking the CA bar exam, particularly as a repeat taker.  I enrolled in Steven’s tutoring program, which included his innovative individual study plan, copies of his books, and instruction in completing both his Essay Review week, and Memory Work.  I struggled with information overload with the my bar prep program for the November exam, and found that the final crucial weeks leading to the exam were essentially left unguided.

  • Irina Trasovan, Esq. - The Trigger List

    The Trigger List is essential for anyone taking the California Bar.  The Trigger List exponentially increased the points I was getting on essays by directing me to issues that may not have been expressly implicated, but would generate points if written about. This book is unlike any other Bar prep tool I have seen--a must have!
     

  • Irina Trasovan, Esq. - WINNIN' TIME!

    If you are taking the California Bar Exam, you want to get a copy of WINNIN' TIME!  I wasted so much time trying to think of how to state a rule or being my analysis while writing essays.  WINNIN' TIME! did all of the work for me. The book provides an excellent compilation of rule statements and templates to follow to avoid wasting precious minutes that can be better spent on generating points.  WINNIN' TIME! makes memorizing the many subjects tested on the California bar manageable.

    To the February 2013 Cal Bar Exam applicant pool, I hope that you receive good news on Friday evening!  It's a challenging time, of course, and everyone telling you that you clearly passed and have nothing to worry about isn't helping one bit.  Take it from someone who passed a February exam.  It's no fun to wait or hear from other people, but at least resolution is here.  My advice:  make sure you have a plan either way.  If you pass, GREAT!  Figure out how you'll celebrate.  If you don't pass, determine some next steps NOW so that if the news isn't good, you have a plan and you can execut

  • Justin Zahrt, Esq.

    The first time I met with Steven, I explained to him that I was a husband and father of three young children.  We discussed my schedule and Steven created a realistic and very complete study schedule, that took into account my own personal strengths and weaknesses.  I must say, going into that first meeting I had no idea what my strengths and weakness even were, but Steven zeroed in on them incredibly quickly.  After that first meeting, I knew that Steven had the keys to passing the Bar Exam.  All I had to do was learn what Steven had to teach, and follow his methods as if they were the onl

    Hello everyone!
    You've finished the Cal Bar Exam.  Great!  But have you uploaded your exam yet?

    If not, WAKE UP, and get it done by noon Pacific Time!  Get it done!

    And while you're at it, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE take a screen shot, cell phone picture, regular camera picture, or even better, a video of your upload.  You need external proof that you uploaded your exam in a timely manner.  JUST IN CASE you get a fun letter from the Bar in April indicating that they couldn't find your exam and you got zeros on 3 or even 6 of your essays.
