I have taken the bar exam several times and have struggled with my essays. I am finding this book to be invaluable in teaching me a new technique for tackling bar exam essays. Scoring High on Bar Exam Essays gives examples of both good AND poorly written essays, as well as step by step instructions for tackling outlining and writing essays. I highly recommend this book for anyone preparing for the bar exam, be it your first or fifth time.
The Bar Exam can't replace good grades in law school. Recommended highly if you have given your teachers an RBI In citizenship, fellowship, or the faith life. Or want to.
