A Note to Repeaters

First, Don't Lose Heart...

If you’re looking at taking the upcoming California bar exam for your second time, or possibly more, you may be feeling frustrated, disappointed, maybe a little disheartened.

First of all, don’t lose heart. You are still in the game. You had the brains and stamina to get through law school so you’ve got what it takes to pass the bar exam. What’s been missing is a winning plan to pass the exam–that’s it. No statistics need to worry you. You are a statistic of one. It’s still just you vs. the bar exam. Just like before.

Only this time, you can decide to do things differently. Study smarter. And get the support you need.

Study Smart...

At Personal Bar Prep, you’ll get concise, live online interactive lectures. We’ll cover the law you need to know to pass the bar, not a full-on law school review. And you don’t have to go it alone…if you’ve got questions during a lecture, you can just ask. 

The heart of our bar review course will help your studies most. Personal Bar Prep’s weekly small group essay writing workshops meet for two hour sessions and will have no more than 14 members. You’ll work intensively to review the essays you’ve been practicing. Have more questions? Those will be answered, too. You will learn as you write, as you talk, as you think the answers through. If you choose to write more essays, those can be turned in for grades and feedback.

The MBEs are 50% of your score on the California bar exam and we don’t leave that part to chance. Our MBE workshops will teach you how to attack this portion of the exam so next time, you can walk in to the exam ready to answer MBEs with confidence.

We also include a detailed, interactive performance test workshop so that you can understand, prepare and practice for this portion of the bar exam.

Get Support...

Your small group meetings will provide the support and accountability you need during an incredibly stressful time. There’s no crowd to get lost in at Personal Bar Prep. Many of our students develop study partnerships with others in the class and the camaraderie that develops adds further support.

Personal Bar Prep’s director, Jay Chavkin, a bar exam tutor who has worked with students since 1995, will be your bar coach and he is available to answer questions, provide support and will counsel you on study strategies whenever necessary. You can call or email with questions at any time.

Make It Affordable...

You might be surprised to find that we provide live online lectures, weekly essay and MBE workshops, all books and materials–and graded essays with meaningful feedback–all for a price below many other less comprehensive bar review courses. This doesn’t even include all the access to your instructor by phone or email at any time. We also provide payment plans.

For some repeat takers, a bar exam tutor is the solution. Jay Chavkin can provide a targeted, intensive program of study that has helped many repeaters pass the bar exam with confidence.
