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.
That’s not to say that you don’t get a rigorous and comprehensive study schedule. In the months before the July 2015 Bar Exam I traveled frequently and Steven engineered a challenging, but realistic study schedule that he knew would get me where I needed to be on exam day.
One of the most helpful things you’ll get from Steven is something you can’t get anywhere else: the essay review program. I’m sure someone else would offer something similar if not for the fact that Steve Harris invented the program. By following his instructions to the letter, I learned to accurately predict the essay issues for which points would be awarded in each subject.
Working with Steven and equipped with a strategy for side-stepping the examiners’ games, you can then turn off your brain and stop guessing about which rule statement’s to use because he gives you the rules. I only used his rule statements and I am now a member of the State Bar of California.
Finally, I have to recommend Steven Harris’ program because getting re-familiarized with all the black letter law you learned in law school, learning how to read the examiners’ minds, and pushing through an absolutely agonizing memorization process takes resolve. When you’re studying for the bar there isn’t time for you to feel defeated and take a break and there definitely isn’t time to question whether or not you’re learning what you need to know for the exam. Steve serves as a capable, firm, confident guide through the process. Sometimes he’ll give you some tough love, but that’s because he won’t mince words – you don’t have time for that either. Steven is really committed to helping his students pass the Bar. Put him in your corner. — Brooks Allen, Esq., passed the July 2015 California Bar Examination
