Are You A Repeat California Bar Exam Taker? It Might Be Time To Change Things Up.

Albert Einstein

99% of repeat bar exam takers did not fail because of lack of intelligence, aptitude, or work ethic. You did make it through law school, remember?

In order to pass the California Bar Exam, you must KNOW the LAW but also, and here is the part that must be reckoned with, be willing to adapt your personal Essay/PT writing/MBE style to fit what the exam graders want to see. Write for the exam, not for yourself. Get it? Style points don’t count here. Only facts, rules, and analyses.

After 3-4 years of arduous law school and studying, you owe it to yourself to pass this exam and earn your license to practice law. The money, personal and family sacrifice, stress… you DESERVE to see it through and pass this exam. BarWinners can help you get there.

What Will I Get from the BarWinners
Repeat Taker Course?

Past Exam Review

Personalized Study Schedule

  • Customized study schedule designed specifically for each individual based on their personal/work schedules and knowledge of each subject area.

3 PERSONAL Two-Hour Workshops (That’s SIX HOURS of Tutoring!!!)

  • MBE Workshop – Focused workshop teaching multi-state techniques to improve process of elimination and learn how to avoid common MBE traps/pitfalls.
  • Essay Writing Workshop – Learn how to read the fact pattern with purpose, outline efficiently, and write in the style exam graders want to see.

I have given several Essay, Performance Test, and MBE workshops at various California law schools and our one-on-one session will use the same outline and material covered in this workshops. However, instead of being in a classroom with other students, this will be a personal and individual session for 2 hours and will enhance and maximize your learning experience.

Access to Quizlet Flashcards and Quizlet App

3 Simulated Exams

Simulated exams are a critical component of the bar exam learning process. You DO NOT want your first bar exam testing session to be on the actual days of the exam. Rather, you want to experience the rigors of exam day multiple times throughout your bar prep so you identify and then eliminate all possible variables and distractors. Replicating test conditions will help you ease anxiety and perform your best come exam day!

15 Essays Graded

  • Volume, volume, volume. Along with memorizing the law and implementing the BarWinners methods I will personally teach during your bar prep, you want to practice as many essays as possible to be prepared for all issues/subjects/crossovers you might see.

“I signed up with BarWinners for the October 2020 Bar exam. I previously took the Bar exam in February 2020. For the February Bar, I used a different Bar course that was highly recommended but didn’t work for me. I felt overwhelmed with the amount of materials provided and the numerous online lectures. During my February bar prep, I worked full-time, and I felt like  I was constantly playing catch-up and checking off the boxes rather than preparing myself for the Bar. For the October 2020 Bar exam, I wanted a more streamlined approach. Daniel’s course gave me exactly what I needed to pass the Bar. The BarWinner’s clean, streamlined outlines and course materials allowed me to focus on learning how to take the Bar exam. I was able to improve my test-taking skills and strengthen

“I would like to personally thank BarWinners and Daniel Garrett for all of their help and support. The program was excellent and gave me the edge to finally reach my goal of passing the California bar exam. I thank God that I was able to participate in the BarWinners program, they took an individual approach with excellent feedback. I highly recommend this program to anyone seriously wanting to pass the bar exam.”

“Working with Daniel was amazing. Daniel was there for me every step of the way. He was patient, knowledgeable and always a phone call or text away from answering my questions. He drilled into me that I had to focus on three things to pass the bar exam; I focused on those three things and I passed. What was amazing is how he would call to check up on me. He also called to check up on me in between the exam to make sure I was doing ok. No other tutor does that. Daniel has your back.”

I took a two-year leave of absence from studying for the CA Bar Exam after my child was diagnosed with Leukemia. I don’t think I would have passed without Daniel and the BarWinners Program. The material provided was easy to understand and is geared to exactly what the examiners look for. The online study program also helps gear you for an online exam, which really helped prepare me. Program aside, Daniel is steadfast in ensuring your success on the bar exam. He takes it personally. It is not just a business for him. He genuinely cares about his students and just wanted me to succeed. I can’t say enough about how much Daniel and his program helped me. He is extremely responsive and as a licensed attorney he is truly knowledgeable. Further, he knows the ins and outs of this exam —

The October 2020 California Bar Exam was my third time taking the exam and I passed! I hesitated as to whether I should get a tutor or not when I came across Daniel after the February 2020 results came out. I e-mailed Daniel my scores and essays and set up an initial consult with him. I was 24 points away from passing with the new passing score of 1390; I had passed the written section but not the MBE. Daniel told me that he would give me tips on how to approach the MBE’s and how to increase my PT score as I scored 60’s on the last two exams. For my October 2020 approach, I decided that I would keep the same approach as I did (using Adaptibar and past CA essays) for February and decided to get to tutor just to be more confident that I would pass. One of the big things for me was mak

I took the bar exam for the first time in February 2020 and failed. When I began studying for the October 2020 bar exam, I knew I needed a new strategy. I learned from what didn’t work the first time. But I also reached out to leverage my resources to help me do whatever it took to pass the 2nd try. Daniel offered workshops on the MBE, Essays, and PT through my law school. I took all of them. After the workshops, he offered to review a sample and give feedback. Upon reviewing my essay and PT, instead of sharing short written feedback like other bar prep courses I had taken, we had a phone call to discuss the areas that I could improve. He went above and beyond in helping me to pass. Daniel helped me create a plan of attack for the Performance Test and guided me on the timing. T

BarWinners is a must for successful bar prep. This program came highly recommended, and I’m very happy with my decision to work with Daniel. I was a repeat taker. When I was looking for a study aid this time, I wanted something that offered me a personal-trainer but for bar prep. Daniel was just that and more. He held me accountable and tailored my study schedule to meet my strengths and weaknesses. In the end, we designed a plan that he said would get me to pass, and it did! I would have worked with him again either way, but I would also highly recommend his program to others! Thanks, Daniel!

“I would highly recommend BARWINNERS to those looking to tackle the California Bar Exam. I began Daniel Garrett’s program during my third attempt at passing the exam. Knowing the law is not sufficient to pass this exam. You need to be able to apply that law to the facts at hand in a clear and concise manner. Daniel and his program were there for me every step of the way with his individualized and straight forward approach. He taught me how to improve upon the writing skills I already possessed, and he gave me new skills necessary to clearly communicate my knowledge and application of the law. Daniel has wonderful insight of what bar exam graders are looking for in essays and the performance test. I also struggled with the MBEs throughout law school, but Daniel taught me a st

“Dan is really the man. He has such a practical way of approaching the bar exam and an approach that lends itself to confidence when sitting for the Bar. I previously signed up with BarBri and although they offered a lot of resources, they weren’t practical- plus I didn’t pass. Dan supplied me with the right materials and knowledge base necessary for the exam, but most importantly the perspective I needed to be successful on the exam. Knowledge of the law alone isn’t enough to pass this exam. That’s why so many bar applicants fail. We drown ourselves in flash cards and study aids to only be left more stressed-out then before. Dan eliminated that and essentially made me take the bar exam throughout his study course. He taught me how to answer an MBE, how to wri
