J. Q.

“When I contacted Steve I already encountered failure: four unsuccessful attempts despite graduating from a top 20 law school. I was confused, discouraged, and desperate. Steve’s coaching gave me with the tools that led to my success: I am an attorney in California today. Steve Zikman’s approach worked for me. Many others didn’t. Discipline: Steve’s method of outlining each subject tested, drafting practice essays, and then reviewing each practice essay line by line – until I got it right – provided me a disciplined path towards the essay portion. Similarly, his MBE program taught me to quickly identify the subject and issue being tested, to apply the applicable law, and to choose the appropriate answer – with confidence.  Clarity: Working with Steve dramatically improved my essay writing skill. Steve taught me to comprehensively address the issues, and sub-issues, presented on any given essay subject tested. His method emphasizes clarity of analysis in a way that makes essays and practice tests easier to write.  Tenacity: Steve only ever asked for my best effort, day in and day out. His program emphasized the academics, yes, but also squarely addressed the extracurricular challenges of approaching the California Bar: the time commitment, life stresses, and test anxiety. Steve taught me to fight for every available point during every minute I was taking the examination. I will tell anyone who will listen: The first time I prepared with Steve Zikman was the last time I took the California Bar Examination.”
