I can say with the utmost confidence that I would not have passed the bar without WINNIN’ TIME! or The Trigger List during my bar prep. I’m not one to give up and either is Steve. From the moment you pick up WINNIN’ TIME! you realize the Bar is not an insurmountable task rather its a test that requires you to score points. Before WINNIN’ TIME! I was not getting the points because I was not playing the game right. Steve helped change that for me.
I followed and did everything WINNIN’ TIME! said to do and erased what I learned from Ivy League Law School. I realized how critical my writing structure was to my success on the bar after taking Steve’s advice. With the book by my side I gained the invaluable skill set of getting to the point in less words than ever before. Before Steve’s book I was the king of verbose writing, I thought more was better. But WINNIN’ TIME! shows you the way you attack the Bar – less is more! My writing excelled quickly and by the time I was prepared for the bar I was extremely concise and efficient in my writing structure.
Developing this writing structure got me to write faster and as a result enabled me to spot more issues than ever before. Mind you I didn’t do this alone. It was The Trigger List that got me there. You quickly realize that to generate points you gotta not only write straight to the point but spot the issues. Well, lucky for me The Trigger List did that! It showed me what word or words triggered an issue and it all became automatic. I saw the word I wrote the issue, repeat, and generate points.
After using both WINNIN’ TIME! and The Trigger List I knew the Bar would soon become a part of my past rather than a future event as it had been too many times.
I hope to one day forget about the Bar but I know I will not forget Steve’s invaluable and caring guidance. So once again, THANKS STEVE! — Daniel Felix, Esq. (passed the February 2015 California Bar Examination)
