Who is Jonathan Grossman?
Jonathan is a bar exam tutor and MBE expert whose company, What’s the Issue, has a practical, down-to-earth, and personal approach to the bar exam that helps either first-time takers or repeaters prepare without being bored. He teaches fundamentals of law, and easy to apply techniques for both the MBE and essay portions of the test, which are designed for you to know how to pass the test and not learn more information. Jonathan is based in Florida, and primarily focuses on students taking the Florida bar exam. He also successfully works with students from many states including, New York, Connecticut, New Jersey, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Texas.
What Makes Jonathan’s Approach Different?
Jonathan believes in the mantra, “The less you think, the better you will do.” This is based on the overwhelming problem he sees most students have with the bar exam, which is concentrating on identifying the one issue that is being tested in each question. Rather than just having hundreds of “fancy words” and Latin phrases in your head, he teaches you HOW to identify the single rule or issue that is presented, and HOW to locate the single corresponding answer. He believes that if you know WHAT the issue is, you will know WHY you are picking the answer you choose, rather than thinking what the answer MIGHT be.
Jonathan’s Work With AdaptiBar
Jonathan recently worked with AdaptiBar on their newly released substantive law lectures on the MBE subjects. The lectures are broken up so they are easy to use and you can target your listening to specific areas of law that you are struggling with. Each subject video is three hours, details what the material will “look like” on the actual exam, explains how the material is tested on the MBE, and includes study techniques. In addition, AdaptiBar’s lectures come with features such as free mobile site access and the ability to “type & save” personal notes while watching.
What Students Say About Jonathan Grossman
“Prior to contacting Whats the Issue, I had tried so hard to pass the bar exam, and unsuccessfully used about 4 other courses out there. However, when I finally came across Whats the Issue, I was able to meet weekly with Jonathan Grossman, and utilized his study strategies which helped me understand and conquer the bar exam. I worked full time, am a wife and a mother, so the quality not the quantity was key for me. By meeting weekly with him and listening over and over “dumb down the questions, and just take time and read each question,” made me really look at the subjects that were being tested and eliminate the incorrect answers. He also broke down the subjects in a way I have never seen before I would recommend to everyone that they contact Whats the issue and Jonathan Grossman. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR FINALLY HELPING ME REACH MY GOAL.” – Melissa, South Florida
“For a repeat-taker, working full-time, it felt nearly impossible. I knew I couldn’t rely on the bloated bar courses traditionally used, so I turned to Jonathan. His program does two things that are integral to success on the bar (and different from traditional courses): (1) it focuses on absorbing fundamental concepts and (2) it requires constant repetition of those concepts until they are instinctive. Jonathan’s style of teaching is direct; he doesn’t waste time and his assignments are geared toward effectiveness. Over the course of six months of studying, passing the Bar went from impossible to achievable. If you follow his advice and put in the focused work his program requires, you’ll pass with confidence.” – Florida Bar Exam Student
