Trust the process! Seriously. I highly recommend Steven Harris as a tutor. His tips and tricks made the bar exam so much more approachable and less daunting the second time around.
The first time I took the bar exam, I had failed by a very small margin. I was upset and disappointed. Steven understood everything I was going through and was there to pick up the pieces and was so instrumental in helping me move forward.
Once I began to trust his process, everything slowly started to fall into place. Issue spotting on the essays became easier. Steven’s The Trigger List was so instrumental in helping me spot the issues for the crazy crossover questions this year. The performance test became much more straightforward and I wasn’t getting every other question wrong on the MBEs anymore. By exam time, I felt confident and ready to take it on.
Thank you again, Steven. — Y. N., Esq. – passed the February 2018 California Bar Examination
