“Steve was incredibly helpful preparing me to take the California bar exam. As someone who does not typically do well on standardized tests and suffers from anxiety, I needed someone who would work with me to keep my confidence up by telling me what I was doing right and wrong and how to correct my mistakes in a clear and concise way, as well as foster a positive mindset going into the exam. I had to put in the work to succeed, but Steve provided me with the tools necessary to pass the California bar exam and a plan for success.   Steve helped identify my weaknesses and provided me with the tools necessary for success. He provided me with not only the outlines to learn the material, but a plan and guidance on how to write for the bar exam graders. This is what I found most important – you need to write attractive essays/PT that are clear and concise with good analysis that uses the facts, to get every point possible. Steve taught me how to do that. When exam day came and I was stressed and anxious, I could tap into those tools to write well despite that anxiety – which I 100% felt on test day. You must take the PT seriously! I can absolutely say that when I got to the PT on exam day, I was beyond happy that Steve taught me how to write this specific kind of PT – I knew exactly what to do, so when I wrote I was in a great mindset and could get those much needed points. As an out-of-state attorney (barred for 4+ years) who worked full-time on the east coast during my California bar exam preparation, I needed some who was going to help keep me on track and prepare me to write for success on the exam as efficiently as possible. I used a commercial company for the exam in my first admitted state and did not find their outlines or their guidance on essay writing, particularly helpful. I did not pass my first admitted state the first time, so the fact that I passed the California bar exam – a more difficult exam with a historically low passage rate – the first time is amazing! To reiterate what I said above, I had to work hard and hustle to succeed, but Steve provided me with the tools necessary for success on the California bar exam the first time. I cannot thank Steve enough for his guidance and recommend him to anyone taking the beast that is the California bar exam, especially if you are an out-of-state attorney, working full-time during bar prep, and/or have test anxiety.”
