Episode 49 Show Notes:

 

Too often, bar exam students try to 'cram' material and then 'regurgitate' it back on the exam. In today's Episode, you'll learn why the 'Binge and Purge' model of learning is counterproductive to passing the bar. 

Jackson will explain the reasons that trying to memorize and later recite material is not an efficient way to study or take your test and he recommends alternative study approaches with much greater success rates.

Episode 47 Show Notes:

 

How do you write a successful bar exam essay? By spotting issues, using the preferred law school method of Issue/Rule/Application/Conclusion... or is there a better way? 

As you might imagine, in today's Episode we'll be discussing a writing style that is in fact better because it's more like what the actual practice of law looks like. We call it 'Common Sense' writing and after listening to this discussion, we think you'll want to know more about how it can work for you.

Check out today's episode and then let us know your thoughts, questions and experiences about writing for the bar exam.

We'll be taking a deeper dive into the July 2015 California Bar Exam results in this episode. Jackson talks about the actual exam results, and offers his perspective on why the exam passing rate continues to decline.

Among the topics discussed are:

  • How the Bar Exam is graded
  • The conflict of interest that bar graders have in California
  • The weakness of the traditional bar review courses 

He then makes some suggestions for those who are repeating the bar exam and offers some advice for first time California Bar Takers as well.

Here are links to some of the resources discussed in this Episode:

Episode 45: Show Notes

In this episode we talk with a successful California bar exam taker, Virginia Marsh. After attending a State accredited law school, Virginia passed the FYLSE (Baby Bar) and then a few years later took the California General Bar Exam and passed on her first try!

In this conversation, Jackson and Virginia talk about the approach she used to direct her study, how she prepared for the MBE, CA Essays and Performance Tests with Jackson's help, and some of the challenges she faced as a non-traditional student and bar taker. It's an inspiring and insightful conversation with someone who really beat the odds!
