Episode 30: Show Notes

In this episode we talk with another successful bar exam taker, John Carter. John is a recent Florida Bar Exam student who passed his exam on the first try, more than 25 years after he graduated from law school. What makes his story so inspiring is that he studied and passed the exam following the death from Lupus of his college age daughter Courtney.

In our conversation, you'll hear how John overcame his grief and this tragedy to succeed on the bar exam. It's an inspiring and moving story. You'll also hear how John used PhotoReading to assist his Celebration Bar Review course and the impact it's made on his life.

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!

Episode 18: Show Notes

In today's episode I tackle one of the biggest, most persistent and ultimately, most harmful myths about studying and taking the bar exam: issue spotting. If you take one of the "BigBox" bar reviews, you'll have issue spotting pounded into your brain and if you listen to the law school professors you'll be sure it's the 'only' way to pass the exam. 

The problem? It's just not true. The bar exam is nothing like law school and issue spotting is a gigantic waste of time, energy and words. In this episode I'll explain why you should avoid issue spotting on your bar exam!

In upcoming episodes I'll be counting up through all ten myths that destroy productivity and keep bar takers from passing the exam.

If you just finished your bar exam you're probably wondering, "what now?" That's a great question and in today's Podcast, I'll address one of the big concerns - should you post-mortem your exam?

I've also just written a new blog post on this topic called: "5 Things to Do While You Wait for Your Bar Exam Results" and you'll want to check that out as well.

Episode 15: Show Notes

The Bar Exam tests your knowledge of the law, but just knowing the law is never enough to pass.

How can that be? As you listen to today's message from my series "Top 10 Bar Exam Myths" I talk about Myth #5: "Know the Law Cold!"It may shake you up but it's a message you absolutely don't want to miss!

Episode 07: Show Notes

One of the challenges for bar exam takers is to wade through all of the test mythology that exists and stay focused on the real task at hand. 

To help, I prepared a series of video messages about the "Top 10 Bar Exam Myths" and in this Episode, I talk about Myth #9: "Do More Questions." In upcoming episodes I'll be counting up through all ten myths that destroy productivity and keep bar takers from passing the exam.
