Mary C. Vegher (University of California, Hastings College of the Law)

“I took the CA bar in July 2014 after using Barbri as my prep course.  After completing dozens of practice essays, several PTs, and hundreds of MBEs, I was incredibly disappointed to not see my name on the pass list in November.  By then, I was working full time and was not sure how to tackle the next exam.  My husband contacted Steve and, after Steve reviewed my scores, I signed up with Steve and the February 2015 exam.  Steve hammered the importance of structure and consistency with my essays, and provided excellent, specific feedback on improving my essays.  He went through each practice essay with me 1-3 times and each time we discussed what score I would have gotten on the essay.  This helped me to realize that an above passing score was possible on each essay and to not be intimidated by any question or issue.  My PTs were my strength and Steve’s approach with me was to focus on earning as many additional points as I could out of each PT.  Coming out of the February exam, I definitely felt like my PTs would help me get on the pass list.  Steve is practical, to-the-point, and treats you like a professional with feedback that is designed to promote improvement rather than complacency.  I highly recommend Steve to anyone who wants to put the CA bar behind them!”
