Hi, I’m Lee Burgess, one of the co-founders of the Bar Exam Toolbox and a long-time bar exam tutor.
We know not everyone needs — or can afford — private one-on-one bar exam tutoring. That’s why we’ve taken the collective knowledge of our experienced team of bar exam tutors and developed economical workshops and tools to help you prepare for bar exam success.
Please read on for details about the current offerings for California and the UBE, and contact us if you have any questions. Thanks!
Writing Help: Essays and Performance Test
If your writing scores need to improve, you’ve come to the right place! We have two different options that can help:
- The Writing of the Week (WOW) Workshop takes a structured approach to bar exam essay and performance test writing. Using short videos, we work through the different steps needed to execute a passing essay, with pauses along the way for you to execute each step. If you’re not sure where to start, or how to consistently draft a passing answer, WOW can help. Find out more here.
- The Brainy Bar Bank (BBB) is your source for practice essays and performance tests! Practice is the best way to prepare for the bar exam, and the BBB categorizes each question by category, topic, and subtopic, so you can easily find the exact question type you want and can also see what’s most commonly tested on the exam you’re taking. Find out more here.
If you’re struggling with the MBE, the Practice of the Week (POW) MBE Workshop is for you:
- POW takes a structured approach to the MBE, using a series of short videos to demonstrate how to approach individual questions. Each video question is paired with a practice question on a similar topic, so you can apply the law and ensure you understand it. Find out more about POW here.
