Hi Steve, I would just like to let you know that I have found out earlier that I have passed the February 2014 California Bar Exam. This is indeed one of the happiest days of my life. I partly owe my success to your very valuable PT course that I had taken in preparation for the last bar exam. I felt that every one of your PT classes have been tailored to boost applicants’ performance and to give all the necessary tips as to how they could save time and to be ahead 1/2 hr to 45 minutes in reading in order to sort through Library and File, how to organize and outline. Next you give your individual students undivided review and valuable critics of their practice PT test. That to me was highly important to build my confidence and to show me that I am on the right track or not. On the first day of the exam, and at the end of the first PT-A test I knew that I have followed your approach point by point and that I had passed the 1st PT test. I had the same experience on the third day of exam upon completing the PT-B test!
Additionally, you had gone above and beyond to give valuable tips on how to prepare for the essay tests by recommending using your Essay Review Week, sharing your Memory Work lecture, and pointers on how to avoid pitfalls. Your approach to me has proven that you truly care about your students’ success on the bar exam by giving them not only the PT test tutorial but also to provide additional valuable information about essay topics, memorization tools and issue spotting approach, yet not to leave out the Evidence and PR Boilerplates. I followed your advice verbatim.
I have also found your both books The Trigger List and WINNIN’ TIME! highly valuable. The Trigger List helps applicants on issue spotting techniques while WINNIN’ TIME! has almost everything a bar taker needs to see the necessary structure for how to write an evidence essay versus civil pro on personal jurisdiction or subject matter jurisdiction or how to structure a product liability question in tort essay situation and more. WINNIN’ TIME! has so much more than just bunch of rules and exceptions. When I was going through the book, it was as though I had a personal tutor showing me not only the well-structured rules but also how they are applied in writing an effective essay or how to spot issues and structure those in either torts, contract, civil pro or evidence essay exam situation and etc. I therefore highly recommend your both tutorial and PT courses to any future bar exam applicants, be it first timers or repeaters.
In conclusion, I am very thankful to you for your valuable PT course, great tips and helpful information that had indeed help me to pass the bar exam. – Michael Panah, Esq., passed the February 2014 California Bar Examination
