  • Good luck on the February 2013 California Bar Exam!

    Feb
    26

    What a great day!  What a phenomenal day!  Licenses are available today!

    All of that practice over the last three months was just that.  Practice.  Today, however, is different.  You are going to bust through that door, get that license you so richly deserve, and move on with the rest of your life.  I wish it to you!

  • PT Class - it's not too late! YOU CAN DO IT!

    Jan
    15
    Hello everyone and welcome to mid-January!
     
    How's studying going? Consider taking a day off this weekend if you're finding yourself burning out a little. This is a typical place for students needing to take a step back for a day.
     
    How's your PT studying going? Started yet? Are you unhappy the current instruction and/or feedback you've been getting?

  • Sam Crary, Esq.

    I passed on the first try and I can't thank Steven enough for the advice and tutoring (via the audio lectures) on the PT.  Even though I only found out about Steven's PT course 14 days before the exam, I was able to listen to the lectures, squeeze in the practice PTs, and implement his memorization strategy, all at the last minute. It gave me a streamlined approach that helped me learn how to focus on what counts and not get bogged down on the stuff that doesn't matter. It saved me time, and I went from struggling to finish PT's to having enough time to at least hit every major issue.

  • Diana Palacios, Esq. - The Trigger List

    WINNIN' TIME! and The Trigger List are must haves for any California Bar Exam taker; the ultimate one-two punch. WINNIN' TIME! made it easy for me to memorize many of the tests and standards that I could not memorize by reading the outlines provided by commercial bar courses because it provides short statements of the law. Meanwhile, The Trigger List taught me when to apply each test and standard and which issues were often tested together. I can say with certainty that these two books helped me pass the Bar.

    Hi Steven!

  • Paul Lovrich, Esq.

    I passed the July 2012 exam. I attribute my success directly to your method, WINNIN' TIME! book, and your PT method.  My problem was not failing to spot issues, but more what to say and how to say it on exam and when to cluster issues.  In your lectures, you mentioned I should have some level of trust in you and your method and follow it to the letter.  I am glad I did trust you and here I am swearing in in Oakland in two weeks.
     
    Thanks again and have a very happy Thanksgiving.

    Steve,
     
    Thank you for doing what you do.
     
    How is it that a 51 year-old online correspondence law graduate, living on the East Coast, working full time with a family has passed the July 2012 California Bar Exam? I can tell you it is by putting in the hard work and study time. More importantly, by working smart.

  • 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.

     

    From calbar.ca.gov:

  • 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.
