Tutoring not for you? Looking for more of a self-help solution to passing the bar? These two books have helped hundreds of students succeed in their bar exam journey. Why not you?
If you’re at this part of the web page, it’s because you already know the best California bar exam prep strategy: practicing exams always beats long-term memorization that you’re going to forget anyway. Good job!
At the three tabs below, you will find Baby Bar Essays, Cal Bar Essays, and Cal Bar PTs from 2002 – 2011. (Baby Bar and Cal Bar exams from 2012 – present are located here.)
The Cal Bar Performance Tests located here (and on the Cal Bar’s website from February 2012 – February 2017) are from the older, 3-hour exam format. They are useful to identify PT exam types, and to see how PT issues are implicated, but you should not use them for practice exams since they are twice as long as the current 90-minute format.
Since you’re here, want some help to figure out which essays to use? Which PTs to use? And how to maximize point generation?
As a California bar exam tutor, Steven’s essay approach is unique within the industry because he covers all three components of essay writing: issue spotting, rules, and presentation. And Steven invented a brilliant strategy in June to avoid Scrolling Hell in outlining essays.
Digital Scratch Pad? Who needs a stinkin’ Digital Scratch Pad? Maximizing and minimizing continually while writing an essay?
Other California bar tutors complicate their programs with highlighters, folding sheets of scratch paper, and hundreds of paper clips. Why? You’re here to generate points, not do origami!
My tutoring techniques focus on what’s important: saving time, avoiding Scrolling Hell on the PTs, and—most importantly—passing the California bar!
