For our California Bar Exam tutoring, we offer three scheduling options: Traditional, Accelerated, and Expedited. Depending upon the proximity of an exam and the demand for individual programs, one or more of these scheduling options may become unavailable for any one program. Please note, to be counted on the day submitted, any submission must be made by 5 pm your local time.
In addition to the critique and evaluation of written submissions, the service includes an unlimited question and answer service regarding any aspect of California Bar Exam preparation and review, including substantive, conceptual inquiries. You can submit an inquiry at any time, day or night, via your personal feedback page. In addition, you will be notified via email as soon as a response is provided.
Once the questions are available, you can download and complete your first answer. Once completed, you can then upload your answer from your computer (in Word, txt, or pdf format). Upon submission, we will evaluate and critique your essay and make the feedback available on your personal feedback page (downloadable pdf files; view samples via the images to the left). This process is repeated for each essay and/or performance test until all items are completed.
Simply writing practice essay after practice essay without critical evaluation and feedback, however, rarely generates sufficient progress in an individual's overall essay quality and performance. We liken this method of California Bar Exam essay and/or performance test practice to someone with a bad golf swing. If your golf swing is deficient, then simply repeating that same bad swing over and over, without outside evaluation and assistance, does not generally create any improvement. Typically, it only reinforces bad habits and techniques. The same can be said of California Bar Exam essay and performance test writing.
For many, learning the law tested on the California Bar Exam is not a problem. Their main difficulty in doing well on the exam lies in improving exam-taking skills, including essay and performance test writing. Fortunately, for such examinees, California Bar Exam essay and performance test writing is a skill, which can be improved with practice.
For each essay and performance test submitted, we provide our in-depth, comprehensive, and timely feedback. Every essay and performance test receives a red-lined, commented critique, identifying where your California Bar Exam writing is deficient and identifying what steps you need to implement in future attempts to create a passing-level answer. Additionally, we provide an in-depth evaluation for each essay and performance test submitted (this is separate and in addition to each critique), identifying how you can improve the graded components of your California Bar Exam essays. You can view sample evaluations and critiques by selecting the above images.
This program is designed for the first-time taker or 1-time repeater of the California Bar Exam who desires a complete one-one-one essay and performance test preparation program with individual, private tutoring. For multiple repeaters, individuals with an identified essay writing deficiency, or first-time takers desiring additional one-on-one assistance, we suggest you consider our . For first-time takers seeking a structured, supplementary writing program, in addition to their bar review course, we suggest you consider our program for the 2017 California Bar Exam.
If you are preparing for the February 2017 California Bar Exam, then you might already recognize the importance the California Bar Examiners place upon the written portion of your bar exam. In total, the essays and performance tests make up almost 2/3 of your entire exam score (65%). Unfortunately, many individuals muddle through and struggle with grasping and understanding an effective, workable approach to organizing and writing both essays and performance tests that receive passing scores. Our February 2017 California Bar Exam Essay & Performance Test Tutoring Solution: Paced program instructs you with a proven method via one-on-one, constructive feedback to improve both your essay and performance test performance.
We will also answer any exam related questions, including questions regarding study strategy and exam-taking. The Q & A service includes substantive questions across all tested subjects. This is an unlimited Q & A service in addition to the essay tutoring service.
BARBRI's unique Personal Study Plan is amazing. Each day, the plan tells you exactly what to do. If I ever finished early, I worked on the extra, personalized homework. If I was caught up on homework, I did extra practice essays, practice MPTs or practice MBE questions. Some days were a little shorter and some were longer, but I never had a single late night studying for the bar exam with BARBRI.
