Episode 27: Show Notes

In today's episode we talk to a new member of the Florida Bar, Andrew Biggart. What makes Andy's story so compelling is that he passed on his 5th try!

In this episode you'll hear how he overcame huge challenges to become a successful bar exam taker. Andy had to handwrite his answers and did most of his studying in just a few weeks. Additionally, he had to change his entire study approach from what the traditional 'bigbox' bar review courses had taught him in the past. His insights and experience will be invaluable if you're a bar repeater.
