“After failing the bar exam multiple times using Barbi, I knew I needed to try a different approach. I struggled to pass the MBE section of the exam until I used Steve’s method. Steve’s coaching helped me drastically increase my MBE score by 68 points from 1415 to 1483 by using Adaptibar and his method. His method helped recognize the pattern of mistakes I was making and as a result it helped me pass the MBE section of the exam. His method will definitely help you pass the MBE section of the exam, which is worth 50% of the exam.  Steve’s coaching also helped me with the Performance Exam section of the exam by pushing me to be organized by outlining the file and library before writing, something I had never done before. Steve’s method helped me make it clear to the bar examiners that I was answering the task memo given in the file. By effectively organizing the file and the library, I was able to write a passing PT answer. His strategic approached made the difference between failing and passing the bar exam. I would recommend Steve to all bar exam candidates who are looking to slay the dragon!”
